The new codeshare partnership will offer the African airline’s customers greater travel choices and seamless connection opportunities in both Kigali and Istanbul.

Yvonne Makolo CEO of RwandAir, said: “We are incredibly excited to have signed this new codeshare agreement with one of the world’s largest and leading carriers, Turkish Airlines.

“This landmark move will not only allow our customers to access the 124 countries served by Turkish Airlines but will improve connections for inbound travellers to Africa via our extensive continental network.

“RwandAir is always exploring new commercial opportunities to expand its reach into markets which can deliver financial return and benefit our growing customer base.”

Currently, Turkish Airlines offers daily flights between RwandAir’s Kigali base and the carrier’s home hub in Istanbul.

This agreement follows the African airline’s recently launched codeshares with leading airlines such as Qatar Airways.
