Royal Brunei Airlines, the national flag carrier for the Sultanate of Brunei, announced that it took delivery of its first Boeing 787 Dreamliner.  The airline is the first carrier in Southeast Asia to operate a Dreamliner.

Royal Brunei Airlines’ 787 is expected to begin service to Singapore on October 18.  Long-haul service to London via Dubai is expected to begin on December 1.

The airline’s 787 will have larger, electronically-dimmable windows, and larger overhead luggage bins and is made primarily of composite materials.  The aircraft uses 20% less fuel and emits 20% fewer CO2 emissions than similar sized aircraft.

Royal Brunei Airlines was founded in 1974.  Its hub is at Brunei International Airport in Berakas, close to Bandar Seri Begewan, the capital of Brunei.
