Berakas - As part of the Brunei International Airport's (BIA) terminal modernisation project, the Brunei Economic Development Board (BEDB) and the Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) under the Ministry of Communications wish to inform the public that there will be a change in the traffic flow and passengers' movement at the Brunei International Airport with effect starting from Wednesday, May 29.
The existing road leading to the departure hall will be closed for public access from 11pm onwards on May 28.
This is to facilitate the construction of facilities for essential utilities such as power sub-station, water tank and distribution pipeworks for the new Arrival and Departure Terminal.
In addition to this, renovation works are also taking place concurrently inside the terminal building such as the arrival and immigration halls as well as the departure lounge.
The Department of Civil Aviation (DCA) and the Brunei Economic Development Board (BEDB) informed the public that operations at Brunei International Airport had returned to normal by 2am, May 8, following a heavy downpour at around 11pm on May 7, flooded the Arrival Hall of the airport, causing much inconvenience to passengers on the late night flight.
The incident, however, caused no major disruption or flight delays.
The Airport Modernisation Project Team had identified that the flooding, which lasted for about one and half hours, was caused by ingress of water through the existing sump or outlet within the Arrival Hall.
