The temporary suspension on Sunday flights from Brunei will take effect on June 4, 2006 and the returning flight on Monday, June 5, until further notice, an RBA press release said.

Prior to that, some flights in April and May are also going to be cancelled.

The affected flights will be BI 177, leaving Bandar Seri Begawan on the Sundays April 23 and 30, and May 7, 21 and 28. The cancelled flights will affect all the returning flights on the next day as well.

RBA said it will advice on the re-instatement of the flights when it comes into force.

"This suspension is only a temporary measure as Australia as a whole is a significant contributor in our network," said the Acting Head of Corporate Communications, Hj Rozman Junaidi said.
