RwandAir - the national carrier of Rwanda and Africa’s fastest growing airline -  has announced it is increasing its frequencies to Dubai to a daily service.

Starting from November onwards, the carrier will fly daily from Kigali to Dubai.

The new schedule is giving more choice to business travelers between Rwanda and the UAE, at times when the two countries are fostering cooperation in various areas. 

The additional flights allow fast and seamless connections in Kigali to the RwandAir network.

In a major overhaul of its operations and with brand new aircraft joining the fleet this month, RwandAir also adjusted frequencies to other existing cities served. Lagos, Brazzaville, Libreville and Johannesburg are conveniently connected to the Dubai flights.

From Kigali International Airport, RwandAir offers connections to Nairobi, Entebbe, Kilimanjaro, Mombasa, Dar es Salaam, Mwanza and Bujumbura.  

RwandAir CEO John Mirenge commented: “We are looking forward to welcome more travellers onto our brand new aircraft. Connecting through Kigali now becomes a real alternative”. 

The airline’s Commercial Director, Bert van der Stege, said: “With the arrival of two new aircraft and the re-design of our current pattern of operations, we are able to enhance the efficiency of our network. Improving connectivity is key for our airline to attract more passengers”.   

Operating from Kigali as its hub in the heart of Africa, RwandAir is the fastest growing airline on the African continent. RwandAir's fleet currently consists of four Boeing 737 aircraft and one Bombardier Dash-200 series. Two brand new CRJ900 regional jets are scheduled to arrive in October this year with an option of a further two in 2013. RwandAir serves two domestic destinations, many regional cities such as Nairobi, Entebbe, Mombasa, Bujumbura, Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro and Mwanza. The airline also serves Johannesburg, Dubai, Lagos, Libreville and Brazzaville. More destinations on the African continent and beyond will be added in 2013 and 2014.
