Brunei International Airport plans to undertake a major upgrade programme over the next three years as part of the country's efforts to modernise airport infrastructure.

Brunei Economic Development Board assistant CEO Julian Fung said the $111m project will improve passenger convenience and enhance baggage security at the airport.

Singapore's Changi Airports International has been chosen to consult on the expansion and upgrade project, according to The Independent.

Fung said the project is expected to be complete in 24 to 36 months and a tender will be issued in the next three to four months.
