RwandAir has announced that from 30th September, it will commence three weekly operations to Conakry (Guinea), Bamako (Mali) and Dakar (Senegal) from its new hub in Cotonou (Benin).
This is in addition to (Gabon), Brazzaville (Congo), and Abidjan (Cote d’Ivoire) that are already served from Cotonou effective 30th August.
The new Cotonou hub will be synchronized with the existing operations from Kigali allowing seamless connections to the rest of the RwandAir destinations, which are growing fast on the African continent and beyond.
“These latest additions are further proof of our commitment to improve connections on the African continent,” said Chance Ndagano, the acting CEO of RwandAir. “We want to create new opportunities for economic exchange, trade and tourism between countries with the aim of fostering economic development.”
The new hub in Cotonou was opened early August, and will allow seamless connections to West and Central Africa.
The launch of these new destinations comes after the successful entry into the European market with flights to London and Brussels in May and July respectively. The new routes will extend RwandAir’s network to twenty-six (26) destinations.
This year, RwandAir also started flights to Mumbai in India and Harare in Zimbabwe.
