The Rwandan capital Kigali is Qatar Airways 17th destination on the African continent. The arrival of flight QR 536 to Rwanda takes the airline’s African capacity up to 132 passenger flights each week across a diverse network of cities. The flights are operated via Entebbe in Uganda with an Airbus A320 in a two-class configuration of 12 seats in Business Class and 132 in Economy.
The addition of the daily flights to Kigali takes Qatar Airways’ East African coverage, including Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, up to 42 flights every week.
In recent months, the Qatari airline launched new African services to Benghazi in Libya and the Ugandan city of Entebbe, with a further three route start-ups planned over the next few months – Mombasa in Kenya, and both Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar in Tanzania.
