Security tightened at Brunei airport

By Huraizah Ahmad

Following the suspected al-Qaeda hatched plot to blow up planes bound for the US from the Heathrow Airport in London that was successfully foiled, airports around the world have stepped up security to thwart any untoward incidents.

Security measures have been tightened at the Brunei International Airport too.

The Department of Civil Aviation, Royal Brunei Police Force and Royal Brunei Airlines yesterday informed the public on the stepped up security at the airport.

Members of the public have been advised to give their full cooperation during the screening process at the airport and have been asked to check-in early in order to avoid any flight delays.

All passengers that will be transiting through other international airports including the United Kingdom have been advised not to bring any liquid matter in their hand carry in addition to all the restricted items that have already been enforced.

The press release informed passengers that there are a few international airports that do not allow the carrying of cabin baggage into the aircraft.

Passengers have also been advised to contact the respective airlines for further information and latest updates before taking their flights.

Royal Brunei Airlines passengers should contact the airlines at 2212222 or log on to the airlines website at for more details.
