East African carrier, RwandAir has concluded plans to begin daily flight services between Kigali and Lagos beginning from October 1, 2016.
This is coming as the carrier plans to connect flight services between Lagos and its hub in Kigali into Far Eastern routes including Mumbai in India and Guangzhou in China, according to its Country Manager, Ms. Ibiyemi Odusi.
Part of reasons why the airline decided to operate into these routes, she said is to bridge in services by the airlines operating on the route.
Odusi said the airline would deploy a bigger aircraft on the route to give passengers value for their money. She also spoke of plans by Rwand Air to extend flight services between Kigali and China as well as Mumbai in India.
Her words, “We are planning to launch two new routes for the Nigerian market, they are Mumbai and Guangzhou in China. We did our marketing research and discovered that Nigeria has a need for more carriers into the Far Eastern routes, and as a strong player on our current routes, we thought there is a great need to satisfy our passengers.
