Rwandair is resuming international flights on the 1st August 2020 albeit with strict observance to preventive protocols against covid-19. All passengers, crew and staff will be required to wear a face mask inside Kigali International Airport premises and onboard our aircraft.
Rwandair was one of the first African airlines to respond to the threat of covid-19. On 31st January Rwandair announced that it was temporarily suspending flights to Guangzhou in China following the spread of the infection in that country.
In March Rwandair suspended flights to European destinations and eventually grounded all its fleet.
The resumption of services comes at a time when some African countries are still reeling under the threat of covid-19. Some of the destination that will be open to fly include Doula , Libreville, Luanda, Lusaka, Dubai, Cotonou, Nairobi and Dar es salaam.
