Posted 14 September 2021 · Add Comment

RwandAir continues its recovery from the pandemic by adding additional routes to the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) from September.

 

As of September 29, the Rwandan flag carrier is to launch new twice-weekly services to both Lubumbashi, the DRC’s mining capital, and Goma​​ - capital of North Kivu province, on the shore of Lake Kivu on 15 October 2021.

 

Customers will be able to book directly through rwandair.com and fly on the airline’s regional Bombardier CRJ Series aircraft, with a De Havilland Dash 8 also operating to Goma.

 

Yvonne Manzi Makolo, RwandAir CEO, said: “RwandAir’s new twice-weekly services to Lubumbashi and Goma will add more choice and flexibility for customers flying to the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

 

“We believe these new routes will be extremely popular with RwandAir customers and increase both diplomatic and commercial links between the DRC and Rwanda.

 

“RwandAir is always looking for new markets to propel the airline’s network and enhance the choice of destinations and routes, not only across sub-Saharan Africa, but also to longer-haul destinations.

 

“We hope to announce further new routes in due course to ensure we meet the demands of our customers and continue to provide top-flight destinations.”
