RwandAir is excited to share that the airline will begin flights to Mumbai, India in September. The airline will fly direct between Kigali and Mumbai, with a stopover in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania.
The flight between Mumbai and Kigali will increase tourism as well as business opportunities and strengthen the relationship between the two nations. RwandAir will serve the route with four weekly flights on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.
“This is a big milestone for the airline as we continue to expand and open Rwanda to the world. As we introduce wide body aircraft into our fleet, Mumbai was selected to be our first long haul destination and will definitely connect the people of Rwanda and India together. We are extremely happy and very enthusiastic about the exchanges between the two countries,” said John Mirenge, RwandAir Chief Executive Officer.
Clarence Fernandes, Co-Chairman Travel, Tourism and Hospitality Committee, Indian Merchant’s Chamber and Representative Rwanda Development Board added: “Air connectivity is always a key factor in promoting any destination. With RwandAir providing this vital link, we can look forward to a very satisfying year ahead in terms of Indian visitors to this beautiful land of a thousand hills and a million smiles. This connectivity will also facilitate trade and investment between India and Rwanda.”
RwandAir recently passed the International Air Transport Association (IATA) Operational Safety Audit with flying colours, a demonstration of the airline’s commitment to operate with the highest international and industry safety standards.
