In June, RwandAir will make its maiden flight to Guangzhou, China to commence its three flights in every week- the national carrier announced Friday.
According to a communiqué, RwandAir will begin plying the Guangzhou route on every Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
“With the increasing volume of trade between African countries and China, the need to meet the high demand of businessmen and traders travelling between Africa and Guangzhou is strongly felt,” said Yvonne Manzi Makolo, the CEO of RwandAir.
Guangzhou is one of the major shopping destinations for merchants also features popular tourist attractions.
This new unique route will be tagged to the existing Mumbai route and will be operated by our Airbus A330 with triple class cabin and equipped with state-of-the-art technology, Wi-Fi onboard, inflight entertainment and comfortable seats with more legroom making it very convenient for long haul flights.
Manzi Makolo is optimistic about this new route saying it will open new business opportunities and also increase the airlines passenger and cargo traffic.
Guangzhou will be RwandAir’s second destination in Asia following Mumbai, which has been operational since April 2017.
So far this new route increases RwandAir’s network to 28 destinations.
