RwandAir to begin five weekly flights to Addis Ababa
Addis Ababa, December 28, 2018 (FBC) – RwandAir, the national carrier, has announced that it will commence direct flights to Addis Ababa, in April next year.
Rwanda’s Daily, The New Times, quoted a statement from RwandAir, that the national carrier will operate five weekly direct flights from Kigali to Addis Ababa with a CRJ-900NG aircraft.
Addis Ababa, which is the capital of Ethiopia, is a strategic city not only for the region but also for the continent.
It hosts the headquarters of the African Union, the United Nations Economic Commission for Africa and other regional offices for a number of international organizations.
The airline’s decision to operate flights between Kigali and Addis Ababa comes following already operational flights by Ethiopian Airlines, which is arguably the top established airline in the region.
The airline currently flies to 26 destinations across East, Central, West and Southern Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Asia.
