The dominant airlines that follow this common route are Qatar Airways and RwandAir. Out of the three major airports in Canada, Pierre Elliott Trudeau International Airport in Montreal has the most options for this route. If you fly from Pearson International Airport, there are generally two to three stops, with one layover in Amsterdam, Istanbul, or London Heathrow. Airlines flying this route include Turkish Air, KLM, and Delta. Most flights from Vancouver International Airport have a layover in either Toronto or Montreal to join one of the routes above.

How do you get from Kigali International Airport to the city centre?

There are a few ways to travel from the airport to the Kigali city centre. First, there are taxis at any time of day or night; however, taxis generally don’t have metered rides, so you’ll want to confirm the cost per ride or cost per km. The best option for budget and convenience is the Kigali Bus Service (KBS). KBS offers a direct shuttle service from the airport to the business district in the city centre every hour and costs approximately C$ 1.26. KBS also offers bus lines that lead into the centre and throughout the city. KBS offers single and day trip rates so you can get around Kigali with convenience. Single trips average around C$ 0.40 and day rates around C$ 0.76. Notably, all KBS buses and shuttles are modern and outfitted with WiFi—a huge benefit when out for the day exploring the city.

What are some things to do in Kigali?

As the capital city of Rwanda, there’s plenty to do and see. This now-modern cosmopolitan city offers all kinds of restaurants, cafes, and nightlife as well as art and cultural landmarks. Outside the city, you can explore and trek through Volcanoes National Park. Back in the city, you can visit the Kigali Genocide Museum to learn what Rwanda and its people faced in 1994 and honour the victims. For art lovers, there is the Rwanda Art Museum located in the former presidential palace and Inema Art Center, which offers classes and tours for a more interactive experience. For shoppers and culture enthusiasts, check out the bright colors and liveliness of the biggest market in Kigali—Kimironko Market. You can spend hours walking through the hundreds of vendors full of brightly colored clothing that can be bought tailored-made. To get around the cit, download the SafeMoto app, Kigali’s version of Uber motorcycle taxis.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Kigali?

You do need a valid Canadian passport to travel to Kigali, and the passport must be valid for 6 months after your stay in the Rwandan capital. A visa is required, but you can receive a 30-day visa on arrival. If you’re planning on a longer stay, you must get a 90 tourist visa in Canada before leaving for Kigali.
