RwandAir will resume operating flights to Dubai today, January 20.
RwandAir, the country’s official carrier, has announced the restart of its service to and from the United Arab Emirates, starting January 20.
Flights to Dubai were halted on December 27, 2017, as the United Arab Emirates prohibited flights from various African nations due to the escalation of a new strain of Covid-19, which was connected to the emergence of the Omicron variety.
“RwandAir will begin operating flights to Dubai on January 20, 2022, for customers originating in Kigali, Entebbe, Douala, Bujumbura, Accra, and Lusaka,” the national airline said in a statement.
According to the announcement, passenger services on RwandAir’s other networks to Dubai as a final destination are still halted until further notice.
According to current requirements, all Rwandan travelers traveling from the country’s ports of departure must provide a Covid-19 immunization certificate.
Arriving or leaving travelers at Kigali International Airport must submit a negative Covid-19 PCR test done at least 72 hours before to departure, as well as a one-day obligatory quarantine at specified hotels, as part of the new travel regulations to stem the spread of the epidemic.
