RwandAir’s route to Guangzhou gets off to a flying start

Posted 21 October 2019 · Add Comment

RwandAir says its new route to Guangzhou is performing ‘beyond expectations’.

 

The all-new three times weekly service, which was launched earlier this year in June, has been hailed a resounding success by the Rwandan carrier.

Yvonne Manzi Makolo, CEO of RwandAir, said: “We always knew our customers would love flying to Guangzhou with RwandAir. But bookings by business and leisure travellers alike have really taken off and exceeded our expectations with very busy flights operating between the two cities.

“While it’s too early to say whether we will add additional capacity with increased services to Guangzhou, our first destination in China, we’re delighted by the initial response from customers.

“With the increasing volume of trade between China and African countries, we will continue to identify further opportunities for expansion to strengthen Rwanda’s ties with key overseas markets and increase trade and commercial links.”

Guangzhou is China’s third biggest city and boasts popular tourist attractions, such as the iconic Canton Tower and is renowned for its huge choice for shopaholics. The city is RwandAir’s second destination in Asia, following Mumbai which launched in 2017.
