Bandar Seri Begawan, 4 May 2009.  Brunei’s award-winning local bank, Baiduri Bank and its national carrier, Royal Brunei Airlines, entered into a partnership agreement that will provide more benefits and convenience to Royal Brunei Airlines American Express cardholders.

A signing ceremony was held at the Mutiara Ballroom, Sheraton Utama Hotel, Bandar Seri Begawan. Mr Raymond Bariou, Deputy Senior General Manager, Baiduri Bank signed on behalf of Baiduri Bank while Mr Wong Peng Hoon, Senior Vice President, Commercial - Sales & Marketing of Royal Brunei Airlines signed on behalf of Royal Brunei Airlines.

Mr Raymond Bariou, Senior Deputy General Manager of Baiduri Bank said, "At Baiduri Bank, we are constantly looking for ways to improve our products and services. This programme brings enhanced benefits to cardmembers who charge more on air tickets to the card, letting them accumulate Royal Skies Miles at a faster pace than before and at the same time, enjoying the many added privileges exclusively available to them. We believe this is the best partnership programme available in Brunei with Royal Skies."

RBA American Express cardmembers earn the most travel points when they charge their RBA spending to the card, which is then converted into Royal Skies miles at the best rate available. Cardmembers can enjoy promotional fares and exclusive travel offers to selected destinations with Royal Brunei Airlines and complimentary travel insurance coverage of up to BND300,000.

Starting 30th June 2009, travel points earned will be converted monthly to Royal Skies miles in which cardholders are entitled to claim awards offered by Royal Brunei Airlines under Royal Skies for free flights, free class upgrades and additional baggage allowance.  All cardholders will be notified on the new benefits by mail in the coming weeks.

In addition, cardholders can earn generous travel points for non-RBA spending charged to the card. To all these travel benefits and privileges, cardmembers can also shop at online stores in the United States via Global e-Shop, a new online shop-and-ship service that offers a new shopping experience with great savings.

The RBA American Express co-brand card issued by Baiduri Bank was launched on 18th April 2007.  Available in Classic and Gold versions, it is accepted on American Express’ global merchant network in over 200 countries and territories.
