Rwanda’s national carrier, RwandAir has announced plans to resumed passenger flights to Dubai in the United Arab Emirates (UAE) with effect from 20th January 2022. This comes after the country was recently removed from the UAE’s red list.
The airline will thus resume flying from Kigali, Uganda, Cameroon, Ghana, Burundi, and Zambia to Dubai.
RwandAir’s flights to Dubai were suspended on 27th December 2021 after the UAE banned flights from some African countries following the emergence of the Omicron COVID-19 variant on the continent. Since January 7, RwandAir was only operating cargo flights from Kigali to Dubai on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays.
However, passenger flights originating from other countries remain suspended until further notice, including Kenya.
