Kigali – September 20, 2013. Tomorrow Saturday the 21st of September, the airline will operate its first flight to Juba in South Sudan. The airline has launched the destination with attractive fares that will surely resonate in the region and beyond. The launch from Kigali to Juba, for example, is fixed at $ 199 all taxes inclusive. With three weekly flights on Monday, Wednesday, and Saturday onboard the brand new 75-seater Bombardier CRJ-900 NextGen, Juba becomes the 15th destination on the network.
In his remarks, the CEO of RwandAir, John Mirenge, shared his enthusiasm as to what Juba represents for the network. “The Republic of South Sudan is a new born democratic state in Africa, a lot of development is buzzing there and business is attractive to investors or other well-wishers who want to join the booming atmosphere”.
“In West Africa, southern Africa, or the East African Community, there is a lot of demand to provide access to Juba. RwandAir and our hub in Kigali offer the convenience in connectivity and affordability”, he added. “We are excited to work with travel agencies and other partners to satisfy this ever growing demand. Our network provides the necessary routes to reach out to a vast community and for Juba travelers to fulfill their travel needs within Africa and in Dubai”, reminded Mr. Mirenge.
RwandAir has offered to boost the experience by offering a free night in beautiful Kigali for passengers traveling from Juba to West Africa or Tanzania. This offer is extended to other destinations as well like Lagos, Accra, Kamembe, Libreville, Brazzaville, and more.
