Brunei International Airport

Bandar Seri Begawan International Airport (BWN)

Location

The airport is situated five miles (8km) north-west of the city centre.

Getting to the city

The journey to the city should take 15 to 25 minutes. Travellers won't find many taxis in Brunei, so they will have to call one in advance. They should also arrange fares prior to their trip.

For a more positive experience, visitors should insist on paying the official rates, or risk having drivers charge them up to 30 percent more. They can contact taxi companies at the following numbers:

PPP: +673 222 214 / +673 226 853

Visitors can also travel into Bandar Seri Begawan by bus. Purple buses #23, 24, 36, 38 and 57 run from Brunei Airport to Bandar Seri Begawan bus station every 30 minutes. The trip should take around 30 minutes. Passengers will find all public transport bus routes at the departures hall, which is at the south end of the main terminal.

Buses are cheaper than taxis, though less frequent or convenient.
