A look inside RwandAir

Rwandair regularly scores high with its luxurious interiors and comfortable seats. However, the airline is set apart from some other airlines with its customer friendly touches – from in-flight entertainment to flight crew.

RwandAir has grown to be an African powerhouse with the extensive routes it services and has continued to grow since its launch 15 years ago.

Important information for passengers

The flag carrier airline of Rwanda, RwandAir Limited, offers international as well as domestic services to the Middle East and Europe, in addition to Central, East and West Africa. This 2002 born airline, with its base at Kigali International Airport in Kigali, today covers a total of 21 destinations. RwandAir codeshares with some major airlines – Brussels Airlines, South African Airways, Ethiopian Airlines and Turkish Airlines.

With 99% of its shares with the Government of Rwanda, the airline sure may be called a public airline. The government did consider privatizing the airline but the plans had to be dropped in 2008 when it realized that the sale wouldn’t earn them the expected profit.
