National carrier RwandAir will before end of July open another European destination, Foreign Minister Louise Mushikiwabo announced Saturday.
Mushikiwabo told some 4000 Rwandans gathered for the much-awaited #RwandaDay that all entry details had been completed. The event is taking place at Flanders Expo in Gent, one of Belgium’s biggest cities.
“I have it on good record that RwandAir could come as far as here,” said Mushikiwabo referring to city of Gent, amid loud and lengthy applause.
“Rwandair will touchdown in Belgium no later than a month from now,” Mushikiwabo told Rwandans in Brussels.
The airline has signed a code share agreement with Brussels Airlines and Turkish Airlines. Flights are operated by Brussels Airlines (Kigali Brussels) and Turkish Airlines (Kigali Istanbul), but under RwandAir flights numbers. It provides a greater access in Europe to the RwandAir customers.
The national carrier already announced its flights to Mumbai, India and Harare in Zimbabwe – bringing it to twenty two destinations.
#RwandaDay event will be addressed by various government officials and President Paul Kagame whose speech is what the thousands are waiting for.
