Kigali, Rwanda (PANA) -  Rwanda's national carrier, RwandAir, is set to open direct flights between Kigali and the Ethiopian capital city, Addis Ababa, from 2 April, 2019, an authoritative source revealed Friday in Kigali.

The statement, obtained by PANA in Kigali, indicates that under the new arrangement, RwandaAir will offer daily flights with the first flight taking off shortly before midnight to arrive in Addis at 5.00 am local time.

From Kigali as its hub, RwandAir currently flies to 26 destinations in West, East and Southern Africa, the Middle East, Mumbai (India) and Europe.

The airline which has 10 aircraft plans to increase its fleet to about 20 in the next two years.

The carrier has grown from a virtual carrier, leasing its entire fleet, to operating its own which now consists of two B737-700s, two B737-800s, two CRJ-900s, two Dash 8-400s, and two A330s.

In May 2017, the airline which has already launched direct flights to and from London Gatwick, unveiled the launch of its new destination in New York as part of the airline’s continued expansion strategy.
