-

1 min read

RwandAir, the national carrier of the Republic of Rwanda, has recently announced that flights to Harare in Zimbabwe and Mumbai in India will commence on 01 and 03 April 2017 respectively.

The flights to Harare will be tagged to the existing Lusaka (Zambia) route and will be operated daily.

Flights to Mumbai flights will be operated non-stop four times per week by the airline’s Bombardier and Boeing Next Generation fleet.

“We are delighted to enable new and seamless connections between more African cities and beyond the continent which goes along with creating more businesses and boost the various countries’ social and economic development”, said John Mirenge, RwandAir Chief Executive Officer.

The two new destinations will take RwandAir’s growing network to twentyone destinations. The airline will this year launch more destinations including its first long haul flights to London Gatwick in the United Kingdom and New York in the United States of America.
