Brunei International Airport

Bandar Seri Begwan International Airport (BWN)


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

Getting to the city

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.
