Rwandan students airlifted back home from Cairo


A special charter by RwandAir was operated over the weekend to airlift some 44 students back home, as the situation in Cairo and other parts of Egypt remains tense. The operation was supported by the Egyptian civil aviation authority and Cairo airport authorities – RwandAir is not flying otherwise to Egypt – and all permits were swiftly granted and the students then assembled and brought to the international airport, from where otherwise mayhem has been reported.

Once there the students were promptly checked in and the flight then returned to Rwanda to the relief of the students, their families and the entire country. Well done RwandAir, stepping in where others failed.
