Royal Brunei Airlines implements its restructuring program

Royal Brunei Airlines (Bandar Seri Begawan) announced on June 21, 2011 a “Stablization Plan” as the flag carrier concentrates on shorter routes in Asia in order to return to profitability. As part of the plan, service to Auckland, Brisbane, Perth and Ho Chi Minh City were suspended on October 31, 2011. Flights to Kuching were previously dropped in July 2011.
