Following instructions from the Rwandan Ministry of Health regarding the global fight against Covid-19 coronavirus, RwandAir has temporarily suspended its commercial passenger flights.

 

The measures will apply for a period of 30 days, beginning at 23.59 on Friday 20 March 2020, and affect all scheduled RwandAir flights departing from and arriving in Rwanda.

 

A RwandAir spokeswoman said: “We are extremely sorry for the disruption and uncertainty this announcement will cause for our customers. However, we are sure they appreciate why this decision is unavoidable at this time and that it has not been taken lightly. We are confident the temporary suspension of our operations will help to reduce the spread of the coronavirus.”
