RwandAir flies to Doha from Kigali
The RwandAir airline has inaugurated its new route between Kigali and Doha, replacing Qatar Airways with which it has signed a codeshare agreement and in loyalty.
The Rwandan national company now offers three flights per week between its base in Kigali and Doha-Hamad international airport, operated by Boeing 737-800 that can accommodate 16 passengers in Business class and 138 in economy. Departures are scheduled for Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 11:25 p.m. to arrive the next day at 6:20 a.m., return flights from Qatar on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday at 1:15 a.m. to land at 6:25 a.m. (average flight time 6:00 a.m.).
RwandAir is without direct competition on this route, its shareholder since last year Qatar Airways having closed its own after nine years of operations; the two carriers have implemented codeshare agreements and loyalty programs since the fall.
