RwandAir will launch flights to Kinshasa, the capital city of the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) effective 17th April, 2019.

 

RwandAir will operate three weekly direct flights from Kigali hub to N'Djili International Airport, the largest of the four international airports in DRC.

This new route will be operated on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays by a Boeing 737-800NG offering 15 seats in business class and 136 seats in economy class. Tickets are now available for sale through our website, sales offices and travel agencies. Passengers from Kinshasa will be able to connect to East Africa, the Middle East and Asia.

In May 2019, RwandAir plans to operate three additional night flights a week to Kinshasa with a CRJ-900NextGen offering 7 seats in business and 68 in economy class to serve passengers connecting to the rest of the continent and Europe.

“We are very proud to add Kinshasa to our network and to offer both passenger and cargo services. This new route will support our growth and increase our footprint in Africa.” said Yvonne Manzi Makolo, the CEO of RwandAir. “We also believe the addition of Kinshasa will boost business and strengthen commercial ties between the two countries” she added.
