Royal Brunei Airlines is resuming flights to Shanghai, almost two years after it suspended the service.

It will operate four times a week between Bandar Seri Begawan and Shanghai, using Boeing 767s, says the airline.

"This expansion is part of Royal Brunei Airlines' strategy to grow the network, offer more options for the travelling public, and develop Brunei as a competitive hub in the region," says Riaz Moiz, the carrier's executive VP of commercial.

Royal Brunei was operating to Shanghai four times a week before suspending the flights in April 2008.
