RwandAir expands flight services to Bangui

The move is a part of the airlines’ rebound plans to ease the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, while expanding its presence across new destinations

Rwanda’s major airline RwandAir will start flying to Bangui as it will roll out the new intra-African service to the Central African Republic. The move is a part of the airlines’ rebound plans to ease the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic, while expanding its presence across new destinations.

It is reported that the airline will start operating in Bangui, twice a week on Wednesdays and Sundays. The new route will be operated by one of the airline’s existing Boeing 737 aircraft. The plane offers seats in two cabins, business class and economy class.

Yvonne Manzi Makolo, RwandAir Chief Executive Officer, told the media, “The launch of our new twice-weekly service to Bangui will open up a new lucrative market for RwandAir and help stimulate trade in the region and beyond Africa. Thanks to RwandAir’s quick and easy connections via our Kigali hub, we believe this new route will strengthen the growing trade ties in Africa and bolster Rwanda’s growing economy. Customers will benefit from more choice, through our premium onboard service, and will fly in a safe and hygienic environment thanks to our world-class cleaning measures.”

The airline has gradually resumed its flight operation from August last year across its global network, majority of flights operated within Africa, including places such as London Heathrow, Brussels and Dubai. RwandAir has suspended its flight operations to three African economies over the fear of a more contagious strain of the coronavirus.
