Aviation news: Rwandair’s Brazzaville flights set for March


(eTN) – Next month will see the launch of RwandAir’s 13th destination across Africa when flights to Brazzaville, Congo, will commence. Depending on demand, the airline will use either a B737 – two brand new B737-800s are also due to join the fleet later this year – or their proven workhorse CRJ200.

The flights will be operated every Tuesday, Friday, and Saturday and scheduled departure and arrival times can be obtained through the company website. It is understood though that arrivals from Brazzaville into Kigali will allow passengers to transit on to other RwandAir flights, into the region and as far as Dubai, which operates also three times a week via the Indian Ocean port city of Mombasa.

The Rwandan national airline is planning to launch more destinations during the course of 2011 as additional aircraft arrive to join the fleet and in order to increase direct and nonstop flights in and out of Kigali.
