RwandaAir, one of the world’s fastest growing airlines by patronage, has offered a 15 percent saving off flights for passengers across its extensive network as Kigali, the capital city of Rwanda, prepares to host over 5,000 delegates and world leaders from 54 member states of the Commonwealth at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting (CHOGM) scheduled for June 20-26 2022.
The airline, which operates one of the newest state-of-the-art fleets of the African continent, said the offer is in celebration of the multinational summit taking place in the continent for the first time in a decade as Commonwealth
member states focus on delivering a common future.
The offer applies to all destinations across RwandAir’s network, and is available to customers who booked flights between June 13 and June 25, 2022, using the special code CHOGM22 at rwandair.com. It also enables customers to travel to 22 countries throughout Africa, Europe, the Middle East, and Asia.
