RwandAir is today celebrating five successful years of flying between London and Kigali.
The Rwandan flag carrier first launched flights from London Gatwick on 26 May 2017, before the airline switched flights to the UK’s busiest airport – London Heathrow – in 2020, to boost connections for those travelling from further afield.
Simon Rickman, RwandAir UK Country Manager, said: “This is a moment for celebration at RwandAir as we mark our fifth anniversary of flying to London.
“The UK is a very important market for us, with flights helping to reunite friends, deepen business ties and tourism links between the UK and Rwanda.
“We thank everyone who has chosen to travel with us over the last five years and all colleagues within the airline who have played their part to make this route such a success for us.”
Currently, RwandAir’s flights to London operate three times per week from London Heathrow’s Terminal 3, with a short stop in Brussels.
Next month, the flag carrier will be adding extra flights to London, ahead of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) to be held in Rwanda for the first time.
The increased schedule will run between 11 June and 3 July and will offer customers select non-stop flights direct to Kigali with a 10% discount on all flights booked with the CHOGM10 promo code.
