RwandAir will commence flights to Addis Ababa, the capital city of Ethiopia, in April 2019.

The airline will operate five weekly direct flights from Kigali to Addis Ababa with a CRJ-900NG aircraft.

“As an expanding young airline, it is imperative for us to fly to Addis Ababa Bole International airport as it is one of the important hubs in Africa,” said Yvonne Manzi Makolo, the CEO of RwandAir. “By starting direct flights to Addis Ababa we expect to offer better connections to East, West and Southern Africa.”
