Official Statement

Regarding the publication of The Guardian (Nigeria), dated 8th December 2016, on RwandAir.

RwandAir wishes to notify its esteemed audience that the entire article is erroneous, wrong, misinformed and invalid.

There is no basis whatsoever for what the story tries to portray or to insinuate. RwandAir has no intention of withdrawing its operations to and from Nigeria rather it has all intentions of growing in frequency and capacity in this market that it has been serving for the past five years.

Furthermore, the only authorized person to speak to the media on behalf of the airline in Nigeria is the Country Manager, Ms. Ibiyemi Odusi, and as such it is regrettable that the Guardian did not make any efforts to contact her to verify their article ahead of publication.

RwandAir requests that The Guardian immediately retract this fictitious article.
