Set to launch services on April 3 to Mumbai, the airline RwandAir has improved its West Africa network ahead of going intercontinental for the first time in its history to tap into that market for passengers traveling to India with them via Kigali.

The airline has confirmed that it is now, under fifth freedom rights, connecting Libreville with Abidjan, via Douala. This added connection has vastly improved connectivity between these three major West African cities without having to fly half-way across the continent to reach the final destination.


Later in the year, flights to London’s Gatwick airport and – if all goes well on the regulatory front – even flights to New York to follow, will be expanding the reach of the Rwandan national carrier even further and cementing Kigali’s growing reputation as a leading African MICE destination.

In May, another brand-new Boeing B737-800NG will be joining the fleet to make it a full dozen planes, this latest acquisition also equipped with an on board Wi-Fi system.
