RwandAir suspends flights to and from Uganda over Covid-19 surge

RwandAir announced late Thursday it had suspended flights to and from Entebbe International Airport in Uganda with immediate effect.

“Due to a surge in Covid-19 cases in Uganda, RwandAir announces the suspension of its flights to Entebbe effective 10 June 2021, until further notice,” Rwanda’s national carrier said in a statement.

It added: “RwandAir sincerely apologizes for the inconvenience caused.”

The airline said the affected customers “can rebook and fly at a later date, once flights resume – or request a refund.”

Uganda has seen an upsurge in new confirmed coronavirus cases and deaths in recent days, forcing authorities there to impose a partial lockdown of six weeks.
