Dec 28, 2018: RwandAir has announced that it will commence flights to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia from April 2019.

RwandAir will operate five weekly direct flights from Kigali to Addis Ababa with a CRJ-900NG aircraft, offering a two class configuration of business and economy classes.

With flights to Addis Ababa, RwandAir will be offering seamless connections through its hub in Kigali between Addis Ababa and other African cities in its network.

The addition of Addis Ababa is key to RwandAir’s growth in Africa and it’s also a bridge for strengthening the bilateral relationships and improving trade and tourism between the two countries.

“As an expanding young airline, it is imperative for us to fly to Addis Ababa Bole International airport as it is one of the important hubs in Africa. By starting direct flights to Addis Ababa we expect to offer better connections to East, West and Southern Africa,” said Yvonne Manzi Makolo, CEO of RwandAir.

With the addition of Addis Ababa to their network, RwandAir will reach 27 destinations in Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia, making it a major force in African aviation.

Also planned for next year are flights to New York, still subject to some regulatory approvals and permits, and also to Guangzhou in China.
