RwandAir suspends flights to Mwanza effective June 1st 2015.
Kigali, June 1st 2015 - RwandAir, the national flag carrier of the Republic of Rwanda, regrets to announce the suspension of flights to Mwanza effective June 1st 2015. The equipment which was operated on the Kamembe route was deployed to Mwanza as the airline decided to re-launch the route and gauge it for possible sustainable operations.
“Our plan was to commence Kamembe when we received our second Bombardier Q400NextGen and continue to grow Mwanza, however the latter did not improve much since it’s first month, thus our decision to suspend the operations to cut our loss”, said Gobena Mikael, General Manager Commercial.
Upon the closure of flights, RwandAir contacted and assisted all booked passengers ahead of time to mitigate frustration and the airline representative in Mwanza approached our trade partners and pledged continuous support from our Arusha and Dar es Salaam offices as well as the Head Office in Kigali.
RwandAir plans to serve the Mwanza route in conjunction with other carriers in the future.
