Breaking News: RwandAir Suspends Flights To And From Guangzhou, China


RwandAir has suspended flights with immediate effect between the Rwandan capital, Kigali, and the Chinese city of Guangzhou.

The decision will be reviewed later in February, the airline said in a statement sent to Taarifa on Friday morning.

The airline said the seizure of flights is temporary.

“The move follows the declaration of a Public Health Emergency of International Concern by the World Health Organisation, the WHO, in relation to the coronavirus outbreak,” the announcement reads in part.

Affected passengers will be re-routed, refunded or allowed to change their tickets to a later date.

Flights from Kigali to Mumbai will continue as per schedule.

The Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority is in the process of notifying other airlines entering Rwanda that any passengers on board their aircraft, who have travelled from China, will upon arrival be screened for potential exposure to novel coronavirus, and may be quarantined for two weeks for observation and case management.
