Rwanda Air customers will now be able to explore even more of the world with its new partnership with Qatar Airways via their hubs in Kigali and Doha.
Through the extensive interline agreement, customers will have access to both airlines’ networks, offering a seamless travel experience and enhanced customer service through both airlines’ frequent flyer programmes.
Customers can pick and choose from over 160 destinations in the combined networks of both airlines, which are perfectly connected via their home main hubs.
Following the recent announcement of the loyalty partnerships, RwandAir Dream Miles members and Qatar Airways Privilege Club loyalty members will have access to each other’s destinations with the ability to earn and burn points across the airlines’ reciprocal route networks.
In a statement, Yvonne Makolo, RwandAir CEO, said: “We’re really excited to be opening up more of the world to our customers through the new interline agreement with Qatar Airways.
“Delivering excellent customer experience is key for us and we know that any traveler flying with Qatar Airways or RwandAir, as part of the agreement, will continue to receive the same unrivaled level of service they’re used to from both airlines.”
“This partnership cements our commitment to giving travelers the widest choice of destinations, while providing a seamless, high quality travel experience, which is the goal of both Qatar Airways and RwandAir,” His Excellency Mr. Akbar Al-Baker, Qatar Airways Group Chief Executive, stated.
“Africa is a hugely important market for us and this latest partnership will help support the recovery of international air travel and offer unrivaled connectivity to and from a number of new African destinations.”
From its Kigali hub, Rwanda Airways offers services throughout Africa and long-distance destinations like London Heathrow. Rwanda Airways is also the first African airline to receive Diamond status from APEX Health Safety, powered by SimpliFlying for COVID prevention measures.
The airline’s customers will also be able to connect through Hamad International Airport (HIA) in Doha, the first airport in the Middle East and Asia to be awarded a Skytrax 5-Star COVID-19 Airport Safety Rating, to access Qatar Airways’ destinations on every continent, from Paris to Washington, Delhi to Hong Kong and many more.
Qatar Airways offers unprecedented connectivity for passengers, making it easy to change their travel dates or destinations if needed. In addition, more frequencies are offered to the airline’s key hubs, making traveling even more convenient.
From Doha, Qatar Airways operates five flights per week to Kigali via Entebbe, using its fuel-efficient and sustainable Boeing Dreamliner aircraft. From Kigali, passengers can connect to many African destinations including Bujumbura, Brazzaville and Libreville.
