10.0 Wonderful
Pros:Clean, comfortable plane and seating. On time service, courteous attendants. A meal served on a flight that was only about an hour in duration - very nice. Very pleased with this airline.
3.0 Poor
Pros:the only one thing I loved about the flight was it being DIRECT from Mombasa to Kigali. I didn't have to pass through Nairobi.
Cons:Don't expect a lot in Africa. The service wasn't that bad, but it needs a lot of improvement. Partyly because Rwandair's planes are small (Boeing 737-200) there was a lot of turbulence during the flight... A lot to learn from Kenyan and Ethiopian!
7.0 Good
Pros:The Rwanda Air staff are great they even allowed us to use their phones to call and make arrangements to go for sight seeing in Kigali. Thank you Rwanda Air Earnest and your friend for being kind and generous to visitors in your country.
Cons:lack of hot drinks. the support staff at the airport was bad, disrespectful. I don' like the way the ladies touch and squeeze peoples bodies when screening. it hurts and is inappropriate. Immigration lady lied that we we should not leave the airport and yet our layover was 8.30hours. What do you do in such a small airport in Kigali for 8.30hours? Thank God for the men that came to rescue us from that horrible situation. The ladies in Rwanda need to be friendly and honest.

RwandAir contact information

Overview of RwandAir

RwandAir flies to a broad scope of countries throughout Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Middle East. Operations are controlled from a hub in Kigali, with connecting stops required along the way to reach more distant destinations. The airline serves as a major link for business travel within East Africa and offers flights to Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, South Sudan, and Burundi.

Owned by the Government of Rwanda, it is the national flag carrier and uses the slogan "Fly the dream of Africa." Aircraft in the fleet feature a golden sun on the tail and a large blue stripe, matching the flag of Rwanda.

Passengers can choose between Economy and Business Class on all RwandAir flights. Premium Economy is also available on services operated by larger aircraft such as the Airbus A330-200. An additional 6 in of legroom is provided to Premium Economy customers as well as the ability to partially recline. The Business Class cabin is set out in a 1 x 2 x 1 layout, meaning every seat has direct aisle access. The chairs have personal AC power outlets and can recline to a flatbed on wider-body jets.

Codeshare agreements are held with Turkish Airlines, Brussels Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, and South African Airways. Passengers can benefit from connected routes and smoother transfers as a result of these partnerships.

A combination of Airbus, Boeing, Bombardier, and De Havilland aircraft are flown by RwandAir. The Airbus A330 series of jets are almost exclusively used for transit to London and can carry roughly 274 passengers. Smaller planes, such as the turboprop De Havilland, are flown domestically throughout Rwanda.
