Direct flights between Rwanda and the Belgium could finally become a reality next months, said Chance Ndagano, the Acting Chief Executive Officer of RwandAir.

If it happens next months, RwandAir shall commence three direct flights a week between Brussels and Kigali, Rwanda’s capital, which will be operated by the airline’s Airbus A330 fleet configured in a triple class cabin and equipped with inflight connectivity.

“Adding Brussels to our fast growing network, reaffirms our commitment to create new opportunities for both continents with smooth connections from cities with high demand and will go a long way in boosting trade and tourism”, said Chance Ndagano, the Acting Chief Executive Officer of RwandAir.

The launch of flights to Brussels comes after the airline’s successful entry into the London market last month (May). The new route takes RwandAir’s network to twenty-three (23) destinations.

All returning flights from Brussels to Kigali will be via London.

Brussels, Belgium’s fascinating capital and the administrative capital of the European Union, is mainly known for centuries of history, renaissance architecture and monuments. The city’s main attractions include the Grand-Place, an UNESCO World Heritage Site, the Bronzed Manneken-Pis and admirable green spaces such as the “Parc du Cinquantenaire”, Belgian Independence Monument.

From its hub at the heart of Africa at Kigali International Airport, RwandAir is reputed for its Excellency in on-time performance, customer service and safety, and has one of the youngest fleet on the African continent. RwandAir, an IATA member airline renewed its IOSA certification in 2016 and has been ISAGO and EASA certified the same year.

With a fleet of twelve aircraft including two wide-body Airbus A330 acquired last year (2016), the airline currently reaches out twenty-two destinations across East, Central, West and Southern Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Asia.

In April and May 2017, RwandAir started flying to Mumbai in India, Harare in Zimbabwe and London, in the United Kingdom. In the third quarter of 2017, RwandAir plans to spread its wings to Bamako (Mali), Conakry (Guinea) and Dakar (Senegal). Later this year, RwandAir’s ever growing network will spread to Guangzhou (China). In 2018, RwandAir plans to enter the American market with flights to New York, in the United States of America.
