Rwandair has announced the resumption of flights to Uganda and India among its destinations which were temporarily closed due to alarming cases of COVID-19 in both countries.
The carrier suspended its flights to Entebbe, Uganda and Mumbai, India in May and July 2021 respectively.
Rwandair CEO Yvonne Makolo told local media that flights to Entebbe, Uganda are planned to resume within a week while flights to Mumbai will follow suit by the end of September.
“We are already working on the plan to resume the flights and have informed the relevant authorities. We are only for a go- ahead but I presume that the flights will resume before end of next week,” Makolo told local media.
“We’re thrilled to announce the resumption of our services to Entebbe from 17th September 2021” the statement read in part on the carrier official social sites.
Normally Rwandair does six flights a week to Entebbe and four flights to Mumbai, via Dar-es-Salaam in Tanzania.
With the resumption of flights, both Governments have issued health protocols that travelers are required to adhere to.
Passengers traveling from Uganda to Kigali must have a negative COVID-19 certificate days before travel, book a quarantine hotel package within 7-days before arrival and take COVID-19 tests.
