RwandAir to launch nonstop flights between London and Kigali

RwandAir will launch direct flights between London Heathrow and Kigali on November 6, 2022.

The African airline has been operating flights to London via Brussels for the past five years, but from next month, these will be replaced with a new non-stop service to cater to increased customer demand.

The new direct flights will operate four times a week, an increase from the airline’s current indirect three times a week service.

Flights will depart Kigali each Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday at 23:35, arriving in London at 06:20 the following morning.

The return flight departs the British capital at 20:30 each Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Sunday, arriving at RwandAir’s home hub at 07:00 the following morning.

The airline has flown between London and Kigali since May 2017, via an indirect service, through Brussels, having launched flights from London Gatwick on 26 May 2017.

In 2020, after three successful years of operations, the African carrier airline switched flights to Heathrow, the UK’s busiest airport, helping to significantly improve connections for those traveling from further afield.

RwandAir currently serves 28 destinations across East, Central, West, and Southern Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and Asia.
