By Amie PDH Ishak

Royal Brunei Airlines (RBA) announced that it has lowered its fuel surcharges for most of its destinations to and from Bandar Seri Begawan. The reduced surcharges will apply to all tickets from November 10 onwards.

"RBA is pleased to pass along savings from the lower fuel surcharge to our passengers," Wong Peng Hoon, Senior Vice President, Commercial Sales and Marketing at RBA, said in a statement.

According to a press release from RBA, the reduction follows the recent drop in crude oil prices. If the price of jet fuel continues to drop, RBA will further review the surcharges.

The new surcharges are as follows:

Kota Kinabalu and Kuching - B$30 one-way
Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Manila, Jakarta, Surabaya and Ho Chi Minh City - B$60 one-way
Bangkok - B$70 one-way
Hong Kong - B$75 one-way
Perth and Brisbane - B$110 one-way
Auckland - B$150 one-way
Dubai - B$130 one-way
Jeddah - B$140 one-way
London - B$185 one-way
