Welcome to Brunei International Airport

The airport is situated 2 miles (4km) north-west of the city centre.


Car Parking

Long and short-term parking, and valet parking is available.

Car Rental

There are no car rental offices at the airport so you will need to pre-arrange a pickup by calling your preferred provider: Avis: 238-238; Budget: 229-388; Elsie: 227-237; and Roseraya: 241-442.

City Transfers

The journey to the city should take 15 to 25 minutes. Hail one of the Purple taxis outside of the arrivals hall or book ahead by calling PPP on 222-214 or 226-853 from inside the terminal. Insist on paying the officially posted rate otherwise you may be charged up to 30% more by the compulsively avaricious drivers. Another option is to travel into Bandar Seri Begawan by bus. Purple buses #23, 24, 36, 38 and 57 run between the bus station and the airport for the city centre every 30 minutes. Note that although cheaper, this is a less frequent and convenient service than that of the more reliable taxis.

Departure Tax
BND 5 for flights to Malaysia, Philippines and Indonesia. BND 12 to all others.
Facilities

Luggage lockers can be found on the arrivals level. A Skycom Airport Business Centre and Business Corner offer a range of business facilities. Other amenities include banks, bureaux de change, ATMs, bars and restaurants, tourist information, a hotel reservation desk, post office and shops, including duty-free. Facilities for disabled passengers are good; those with special needs should contact their airline in advance.

Language
The official language of the Sultanate is Malay although English is spoken widely and is the medium of instruction in secondary and tertiary education.
Money

The official currency is the Brunei Dollar (BND), divided into 100 cents. The Brunei Dollar is linked to the Singaporean Dollar which is accepted as legal tender throughout Brunei.

All major credit cards are accepted in larger hotels, restaurants and shops. Cash is best advised for smaller establishments and when transacting in remote areas. ATMs are widespread especially at major banks which are concentrated along Jalan Sultan in the capital.

To cash travellers cheques or change money use the major banks as they offer far better rates than hotels. Money can also be converted at the informal moneychangers that operate from booths at most transport hubs. If you choose to use this channel ensure you shop around for the best rate.

Terminal Transfers

There is only one terminal at the airport.

Time
Local time is GMT +8.
