RwandAir set to launch daily direct London flights

RwandAir is to launch daily direct services between London Heathrow and Kigali this winter, as it continues to expand its European network and meet the extra demand for UK flights. 

The African airline, which has been operating from London since May 2017, will increase capacity on its London Heathrow route from October 29, 2023, with the addition of a new daily service. 

The new direct flights, which are on sale from today, will operate daily, which marks a significant increase from the airline’s current four-weekly operation. Flight WB711 departs the British capital at 8:30pm each evening, arriving into RwandAir’s home hub at 7:00am the following morning. Returning flights WB710 departs Kigali each evening at 11:35pm, arriving into London at 6:20am the following morning.
