Rwandair Returns to Service


RwandAir, the Rwandan national flag carrier, will resume commercial passenger services from 1st August 2020. Flights will restart with select African routes where travel restrictions have been eased and borders have reopened.

Flights to the airline’s long-haul destination of Dubai will also recommence with a 3 times a week service and more destinations will gradually be added to the network as countries continue to lift travel restrictions.
The airline temporarily suspended commercial flights on 20th March 2020 in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Customers can check the full schedule of available flights on Yvonne Manzi Makolo, RwandAir CEO, said: “Now travel bans and restrictions are being relaxed, we can once again resume flying and look forward to welcoming our highly-valued customers back to RwandAir.

“We want to ensure our return to flying matches consumer demand as the world adapts to travel in the post-COVID-19 world, where the health, safety and security of our customers and staff will continue to be of paramount importance.

“As we adjust to the ‘new normal’, our strict new health and hygiene measures will keep
customers and our ground and on board crew safe”. RwandAir has been working hard to prepare for the return of its customers, and has published a Five-Step Health & Safety Guide that can be found on to ensure a clean and secure welcome back on board.

As RwandAir ramps up passenger flights, the airline will react quickly and responsibly to changing demand, as the world combats the coronavirus outbreak. Schedules will be kept under constant review to adapt to travel restrictions in different countries.
