RwandAir Continues to Connect Europe and Africa as the Only Airline Providing Direct Service Between Paris and Kigali 

(Kigali) 27 June 2024 – RwandAir is celebrating the first anniversary of its direct flights from Paris to Kigali, providing improved connectivity between Africa and Europe. Launched in June 2023, the flight operates three times a week. With RwandAir’s extensive network of destinations, the route allows travelers to connect to East, West, Central, and Southern Africa via Kigali, providing a gateway to Africa. 

In the past year, the airline has operated over 150 flights between these destinations as it meets the growing demand from the European market. And, as the world gears up for the 2024 Summer Olympics, RwandAir is proud to provide special assistance and travel for some Olympic athletes traveling to Paris. 

RwandAir provides the only direct route between Paris and Kigali and offers stopover service for some flights connecting through Kigali. This allows passengers to explore Rwanda before continuing on to their final destinations.

This route has played a vital role in expanding our global connectivity and demonstrating our dedication to offering an outstanding travel experience for our customers.” 

“We have seen a growing demand from the French market, reflecting the strong ties and mutual interests between Rwanda and France. Our direct flights have made travel more convenient for our valued customers and serve as a bridge to increase tourism, business, and cultural ties between both countries.” 

Flight WB700 departs Kigali every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday at 00:50 AM and arrives at Paris’ Charles de Gaulle Airport at 09:30 AM the same morning. 

The returning flight WB701 leaves Paris at 09:30 PM every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, arriving in Kigali, the vibrant capital of Rwanda, at 06:00 AM the following morning.
