BANDAR SERI BEGAWAN, Aug. 4 (Xinhua) -- Brunei resumed direct flights with Hangzhou, China on Tuesday, marking its first direct flights with the Chinese mainland after COVID-19 pandemic cut air connection between the two sides.

According to travel agencies and the Chinese embassy in Brunei, the round-trip direct flights between Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei's capital, and Hangzhou will be carried out by Royal Brunei Airlines (RB), the sultanate's national carrier, with Boeing 787 or Airbus 320.
