RwandAir returns to service

RwandAir, the Rwandan national flag carrier, will resume commercial passenger services from 1 August 2020.

Flights will restart with select African routes where travel restrictions have been eased and borders have reopened.

Flights to the airline’s long-haul destination of Dubai will also recommence with a thrice weekly service and more destinations will gradually be added to the network as countries continue to lift travel restrictions.

The airline has not yet announced the restoration of flights between London and Kigali.

As RwandAir ramps up passenger flights schedules will be kept under constant review to adapt to travel restrictions in different countries. The airline will react quickly and responsibly to changing demand, as the world combats coronavirus.

The airline temporarily suspended commercial flights on 20 March, 2020, in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic outbreak.

Yvonne Manzi Makolo, RwandAir CEO, said: “Now travel bans and restrictions are being relaxed, we can once again resume flying and look forward to welcoming our highly-valued customers back to RwandAir.

“We want to ensure our return to flying matches consumer demand as the world adapts to travel in the post-COVID-19 world, where the health, safety and security of our customers and staff will continue to be of paramount importance.

“As we adjust to the ‘new normal’, our strict new health and hygiene measures will keep customers and our ground and onboard crew safe”.
