We began operations on 1st December 2002 as the new national carrier under the name Rwandair Express (passenger Air transportation as the core activity) for Rwanda with a concession to carry out airport ground handling (ancillary activity) at Kigali International airport, Kanombe. In March 2009, we registered a new trademark “RwandAir” which is our current operating name.
Operating from Kigali as our hub, the airline boasts of a young fleet of two Boeing 737-800NG, two Boeing 737-700NG, two CRJ900NG and a Dash8-200 and has chosen to provide a memorable travel experience to every single passenger on our routes. Later this year we will take delivery of a brand new Bombardier Q-400NextGen.
We serve most East African Community capital cities as well Johannesburg and Dubai with daily flights. Recently, we introduced Flights to Lagos in Nigeria, Accra in Ghana, Juba in South Sudan and intend to expand to Doula in Cameroon. Our Current destinations include Lusaka, Nairobi, Entebbe, Mombasa, Bujumbura, Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, Johannesburg, Brazzaville, Dubai, Lagos, Accra and Juba.
