RwandAir re-launches Mwanza flights


According to eTurboNews, RwandAir will resume flights to Mwanza, Tanzania’s lakeside city, effective 1 November.

Flight WB 470/1 will initially operate every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, using the airline’s Bombardier Q400NextGen, leaving Kigali at 13h30 and arriving in Mwanza at 15h30. The dual-class cabin configuration offers passengers across the network, even when travelling on the turboprop aircraft, the choice of premium services besides Economy Class.

The airline launched flights to Mwanza two years ago, but soon pulled out of the route. With the return to Mwanza, passengers have the option to fly via Kigali to West and South Africa, Dubai and other destinations across Eastern Africa.

Mwanza is RwandAir’s third destination in Tanzania after Dar es Salaam and Kilimanjaro, and the 17th in its network. RwandAir flies to Brazzaville (Republic of Congo), Libreville (Gabon), Douala (Cameroon), Lagos (Nigeria), Accra (Ghana), Johannesburg (South Africa), Bujumbura (Burundi), Nairobi and Mombasa (Kenya), Entebbe (Uganda) and Juba (South Sudan), as well as daily to Dubai. Locally, RwandAir serves Kamembe, although that airport will be closed for runway repairs and extension as of 1 November.
