RwandAir set to announce Mwanza flights


A regular source in Kigali has confirmed that RwandAir will be adding Mwanza, Tanzanias main Lake Victoria township, to their growing list of destinations as the airline continues to expand. The flights are due to commence in June, just weeks from now, and preparations are in high gear to add another Tanzanian gateway to RwandAirs regional flight network. The airline is already serving both Dar es Salaam and Kilimanjaro International outside Arusha with flights on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays.
This information comes only days after the airline announced that starting June 10th they will go daily to Johannesburg, serving notice to their immediate rivals that they are an airline on the prowl, set to expand their reach in their task to connect the Land of a Thousand Hills across the region and the continent at large.
RwandAir, with the full backing of the government in Kigali, has been progressively implementing their strategic and business plans, acquired two brand new B737-800 last year and has two brand new Bombardier CRJ900 on order, due for delivery in October this year. Only on Monday this week Bombardiers also showed off their latest Q400 NextGen aircraft in Kigali, as RwandAir ponders the acquisition of larger turboprop aircraft to be deployed on their domestic services to Kamembe, where demand for flights in particular from Congolese travelers across the common border has been showing impressive growth rates.

  1. Other blogs say July. Nothing on the RwandAir site. Are we sure it is starting in June?
