RwandaAir : DXB-JNB $704 RT

- new airline to watch out for, new A330 DXB-KGL, narrow-body to JNB

- get a long layover or stopover in KGL - you will be (positively) surprised!

- no miles outside RwandaAir program

Anyone know how to add in a stopover in KGL without the price bump? Cant be booked direct on Rawanda website as no multi stop option.
Thanks

**Edit - figured it out on Rawanda website which is cheaper than multitrip on Kayak.

Also nice fares on KQ (Kenya Airways, Sky Team) & ET (Ethiopian, Star Alliance) for about $900 rt. Plenty of availability.

Good find OP, thanks for sharing!

Sorry to nitpick but the airline is exactly RwandAir

Apparently the Jnb-kgl legs are often operated with a brand new 738 with free wifi onboard!

Also, for those interested RwandAir is set to launch Kigali - London Gatwick 4x weekly this coming Friday (26/05/17) and may offer attractive fares to/from western/southern/East Africa:


WB700 KGL1220 – 2000LGW 332 2
WB700 KGL1230 – 2010LGW 332 34
WB700 KGL1245 – 2025LGW 332 5

WB701 LGW2130 – 0710+1KGL 332 2
WB701 LGW2140 – 0720+1KGL 332 34
WB701 LGW2150 – 0730+1KGL 332 5

Where to credit RwandAir? Wheretocredit.com doesn't even list the airline.

Seems that Rwandair is one of those airlines where you'll either credit the miles on their program or you won't get any miles. AFAIK they have codeshares with SN, ET, SA and TK, but cooperation with said airlines apparently doesn't extend beyond codesharing.
