National carrier RwandAir on Wednesday made its maiden commercial flight to Kinshasa, the capital of DR Congo, and the airline will operate three weekly direct flights from Kigali International Airport to Kinshasa’s N’Djili International Airport.
The route will be operated on Wednesdays, Fridays, and Sundays, as the private sector in the two neighboring countries observe that the new route will reduce costs and time previously taken up.
In March, officials from both countries signed a bilateral service air agreement allowing RwandAir to fly to Kinshasa.
Kinshasa becomes now the 23rd RwandAir destination in Africa, extending RwandAir’s network across the globe to 27 destinations. Otherwise, company officials argue that not only the new route will support his growth and increase his footprint in Africa, but also that It will boost business and strengthen commercial ties between the two countries.
These flights will establish new a connection with RwandAir’s other flights to African capitals, Europe Middle East and Asia
