Rwandair to Spread Wings to 3 New West African Destinations
RwandAir will commence three weekly operations to Conakry (Guinea), Bamako (Mali) and Dakar (Senegal) from its new hub in Cotonou (Benin) with effect from 30th September 2017.
This is in addition to the three destinations, Libreville (Gabon), Brazzaville (Congo), and Abidjan (Cote d’Ivoire) that are already served from Cotonou effective 30th August.
The new Cotonou hub will be synchronized with the existing operations from Kigali allowing seamless connections to the rest of the RwandAir destinations, which are growing fast on the African continent and beyond.
Dakar, Bamako, and Conakry are some of the largest cities in West Africa, and are home to a vast multicultural heritage and rich history with museums and ancient mosques dating back from the time of the great African empires.
The launch of the new destinations follows the successful entry into the European market with flights to London and Brussels in May and July respectively.
From its hub at the heart of Africa at Kigali International Airport, RwandAir is reputed for its excellent on-time performance, customer service and safety, and has one of the youngest fleet on the African continent.
With a fleet of twelve aircraft including two wide-body Airbus A330s, the airline currently flies to twenty-three destinations across East, Central, West and Southern Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Asia.
When operational, the new West African destinations will extend RwandAir’s rapidly global network to 26.
