RwandAir’s first flight between the two cities departed Kigali for Brussels on 14 July 2017, on one of the carrier's state-of-the-art Airbus A330s, linking Belgium with Rwanda in just over eight hours.
Currently, direct flights between Kigali and Brussels operate three times a week, on one of the airline’ flagship A330 aircraft.
The carrier’s convenient schedule also allows for easy connections through Kigali and onto a wealth of destinations in Africa, the Middle East, and Asia.
Charles Gashumba, RwandAir Brussels country manager, said: “We launched flights to Brussels five years ago as we looked to add connections between cities with high demand.
“It is a proud moment to celebrate this great milestone and we thank all of our customers for choosing to fly with us on this route.
“We look forward to continuing to offer increased connectivity between Europe and Rwanda and further strengthen business opportunities between us.”
