RwandAir’s first nonstop flight between Kigali and London lands in Heathrow today

RwandAir made this announcement:

The ambitious African airline has been operating flights to London via Brussels for the past five years, but from today, November 7, they have been replaced with a new nonstop direct service to cater for demand.

Customers will be able to fly four times a week departing Heathrow for the Rwandan capital as the WB711 at 20:30 every Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, arriving at 07:00 the following morning.

The returning flight, WB710 departs Kigali each Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday at 23:35, arriving into London at 06:20 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 May 26, 2017 (top).

In 2020, after three successful years, the African airline switched flights to Heathrow, helping to improve connections for travellers.

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