- On 2 July, RwandAir added flights to Mwanza (MWZ), Tanzania’s second-largest city and RwandAir’s second destination in the country, to its network from the Rwandan capital Kigali (KGL). RwandAir’s CEO, John Mirenge, said: “Our aim is to expand into the region’s key cities; we are pleased to offer a much more convenient product to passengers originating in Mwanza, who previously had no choice but to transfer at Dar es Salaam.” The thrice-weekly service is offered using Dash-8s seating up to 37 passengers.
