Royal Brunei Airlines (RB) has expanded its flight route network to the city of Zhengzhou, Henan Province, east-central China, a 4 hours 45 minutes flight from the RB hub in Bandar Seri Begawan.

Zhengzhou, one of the 13 emerging megacities in China, is situated on the Yellow river and the city is notable as the centre for business, shopping and fashionable entertainment in Henan province.
