Getting to know RwandAir

Compared to its global counterparts, Rwanda’s national carrier is still a spring chicken, tracing its roots back to December 2002, when it was officially launched under the name RwandAir Express. A couple of years later a new trademark was registered, dubbing it plain and simply RwandAir.

Operating from Kigali, RwandAir prides itself in being one of the fastest growing airlines in Africa with one of the youngest fleets.

Their network currently covers a variety of cities throughout Eastern, Western and Southern Africa as well as the Middle East.
