Getting around by air

Given its small size, Rwanda is well connected to other major transport hubs in Africa, as well as a few European capitals.

Airports & Airlines

Rwanda has one international gateway for arrival by air, Kigali International Airport, which is located at Kanombe, 10km east of Kigali's city centre.

Brussels Airlines Operates six flights a week to/from Brussels (with onward connections to many European cities). Baggage can be checked in here on the day of departure between 10am and 1pm – very convenient as flights to Brussels leave at night.

Kenya Airways Has three daily flights to/from Nairobi.

KLM Has two daily flights to/from Amsterdam (one via Nairobi). KLM bookings are handled by Kenya Airways.
