Rwandair reviews

My Review of Flying With RwandAir

I was pleasantly surprised on board RwandAir. This national carrier of Rwanda has new fleets with beautiful interior designs, complimentary in-flight WiFi connections, and exceptional service from the crew members. Flights were on time and we didn’t experience any delays on all routes.

Lagos to Kigali:-

This was my first experience and I was stunned. When I booked RwandAir, I opted to fly with them because I found a cheaper deal which included a stop in Kigali City on my return journey. The total cost of my ticket was cheaper than a direct flight from Lagos to Dubai which was my primary destination, so I thought it would be great to make a stop in Kigali and see the City before returning home. This turned out to be one of the best decisions I made on this trip.

Read about my travel experience in Rwanda and everything you need to know before visiting Rwanda.

My flight from Lagos to Kigali was 4:30hrs. The food was great, the service was good and the calming music melody played before take off and after we landed was ecstatic.

My favorite was the RwandAir Jingle and Umpe akanya by Jules Sentore ft Teta Diana.

I had a 3-hour layover before my connecting flight to Dubai and the wait at Kigali Airport wasn’t any different. Kigali International Airport is very clean and has free WiFi service which is all I require for any layover. 🙂


Kigali to Dubai

Our flight to Dubai was on time and we arrived a few minutes ahead of schedule. The in-flight meal was great (I didn’t lose my taste buds this time) 🙂

We landed Dubai International Airport at Terminal 2, a smaller terminal compared to 1 and 3. This was perfect because it meant less queuing for immigration purpose.


Dubai to Kigali
Our flight from Dubai to Kigali took 5:50hrs and it was right on time.

Arriving Kigali, the visa process was straightforward. I paid $30 for a visa on arrival valid for 30 days.


Kigali to Lagos
Returning home is usually the least exciting part of my journey but this was different. I was exhausted from travelling and was eager to return home. The seat assigned to me was very close to the kitchen which meant more food 🙂 and I was by myself stretched out on 3 seats and I loved it.

I also had this pleasant crew member who seemed interested in feeding me fat keeping me happy so I smiled at him often and the snacks and drinks kept coming in double portions. God bless this brother!!!

Now, before you say I like food, kindly read the author section of my blog and decide if you still want to judge me. 🙂

RwandAir definitely stood out for me. Share your RwandAir Reviews.
