RwandAir Set to Begin Direct Flights to London Heathrow

All is now set for RwandAir to launch direct flights between Kigali and London Heathrow. The non-stop service will begin on 6 November 2022 using an Airbus A330.

RwandAir has been operating flights to London via Brussels for the past five years, but from next month, these flights will be replaced with a new non-stop service to cater to demand.

The new direct flights, which are on sale from today, will operate four times a week, an increase from the airline’s current indirect thrice-weekly operation.

Outbound flights depart Kigali each Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at 23:35, arriving in London at 06:20 the following morning.

The return flight departs London at 20:30 each Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, arriving at RwandAir’s home hub at 07:00 the following morning. All times are local.

Customers traveling to the ‘Land of a Thousand Hills, will experience RwandAir’s state-of-the-art A330 aircraft, which offers a choice of flying in Business Class or Economy Class.

The new RwandAir’s direct flights will increase access for those looking to see the famous mountain gorillas, experience Rwanda’s majestic scenery, or go on a safari at Akagera National Park.

The airlines’ convenient schedule also allows for easy connections through Kigali and onto a wealth of destinations in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.

The airline has flown between London and Kigali since May 2017 via an indirect service through Brussels, having launched flights from London Gatwick on 26 May 2017.

In 2020, after three successful years of operations, the African carrier airline decided to switch flights to the UK’s busiest airport London Heathrow, helping to improve connections for those traveling from further afield.

From its hub at the heart of Africa at Kigali International Airport, RwandAir is renowned for its excellent on-time performance, customer service, and safety. The airline has for two successive years been awarded “The best airline staff in Africa”

RwandAir currently flies to 28 regional and international destinations, including Lagos, Abuja, Accra, Dakar, Lusaka, Nairobi, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Dubai, Mumbai, Brussels, and Guangzhou.
