How to get to | Brunei

This is part of a series of blog entries on how to get to countries and places. Here is a link to the index. I plan to eventually cover every country and some other places. If you have a request for a particular country or place please use the contact me link at top right, or leave a comment.

This small country is accessible by land from east Malaysia, or by air from neighbouring countries. The easiest way is on the national carrier Royal Brunei Airlines (from Australia, New Zealand, Dubai, UK and neighbouring countries). The cheapest way is on low cost carrier Air Asia from Kuala Lumpur. As far as alliance airlines there is only one, Singapore Airlines (watch for codeshares with Royal Brunei Airlines or substitutions for Silk Air if wanting to earn or redeem miles).

TIP for those with Sky Team frequent flyer programs it may be worth flying partner airline Malaysian Airlines - fares are less steep from Kuala Lumpur.

TIP if flying to Brunei from further afield than southeast Asia on Malaysian Airlines or Singapore Airlines it may cost little more than flights to their hubs.
