After taking a 60% stake in Kigali’s new airport in December 2019, Qatar Airways acquired a 49% stake in RwandAir in 2020.
RwandAir will now begin direct flights between Kigali and Doha, Qatar in December 2021.
The codeshare allows for greater connectivity to more than 65 destinations around Africa and the rest of the world, utilizing one reservation, boarding, and baggage check-in experience for their entire journey.
The downside for business class travelers from Doha to Kigali is you won’t get a Qsuite as you would flying aboard Qatar Airways.
Ultimate Africa President
“I first visited Africa in the late 1980s. I came face to face with a wild elephant, and fell in love with being on safari! I made it my goal to create an African travel company that was all about authentic wildlife experiences. Many years later we are one of the top African travel companies in the Americas – known for arranging custom safaris to East and Southern Africa; personal trips, no cookie cutter stuff.”
