RwandAir to commence direct flights from Brussels to Kigali

Posted 26 October 2017 · Add Comment

RwandAir has announced that the flight schedule of the Brussels route will become non-stop to Kigali effective 31st October, 2017.

RwandAir will continue to offer three weekly flights from/to Brussels on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays; however flights from Brussels to Kigali will no longer be operated via London Gatwick which will eliminate the requirement for non-Schengen citizens to hold a UK transit visa and to disembark for rescreening at London Gatwick Airport.

The new schedule was made possible pursuant to negotiations with Gatwick Airport for an earlier slot out of London, enabling our aircraft to return to Brussels ahead of the jet ban.

“We are confident,” said Chance Ndagano, Ag. CEO of RwandAir. “That the new schedule will improve the experience of our esteemed clients boarding from Brussels, while maintaining our schedule from London with only one stop in Brussels.”
