RwandAir has announced the suspension of 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.
“RwandaAir sincerely apologizes for the inconveniences caused,” the statement further read.
The airline said that affected customers can rebook and fly at a later date, once flights resume, at no additional coast – or request a refund.
Uganda is experiencing a second wave of Covid-19 with the new confirmed positive cases and deaths on the rise in recent days, forcing the government to re-impose a partial lockdown for 42 days.
