RwandAir to Spread Wings to Abuja with 5th Freedom Right


RwandAir, the national airline of Rwanda has been given approval by the Nigerian Government to operate flights into Abuja, the capital city of Nigeria starting on 1st January 2018.

Announcing this on its Twitter page on 16 December, Rwandan Ministry of Infrastructure said the authorization for the new service will come into effect from 1 January, 2018.

RwandAir also obtained 5th Freedom right between Abuja and Yaoundé, the capital of Cameroon, allowing it to carry passengers between the two West African cities.

However, RwandAir is yet to officially announce the commencement date for the new service.

RwandAir is reputed for excellent on-time performance, customer service and safety, and has seen aggressive route development in recent years.

This year alone, the airline started flights from Kigali to Mumbai, Harare, London Gatwick and Brussels as well as Dakar from its new hub in Cotonou.

RwandAir also introduced flights to Abidjan, Libreville and Brazzaville from the hub in Cotonou and will start operations to Bamako and Conakry from the same hub by the end of November this year.

With a fleet of 12 aircraft including two wide-body Airbus A330 acquired last year, the airline currently flies to 24 destinations across Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Asia.

The airline’s ever growing network will soon include Guangzhou in China. In 2018, RwandAir plans to enter the American market with flights to New York, in the USA.
