BRUSSELS — SN Brussels Airlines decided against flying to Kigali on Saturday, reversing an earlier decision to resume flights to the Rwandan capital.
"The negotiations with the Rwandan authorities are not yet completed," the Belgian airline said.
SN flights to Rwanda were suspended at the end February after Rwandan authorities kept an SN plane on the ground at Kigali for three days.
The airline then announced on Thursday it was prepared to resume its Brussels-Kigali flights on Saturday, but reversed that decision late on Friday.
"In view of the fact we want to spare our clients further inconvenience, we have decided to suspend landings at Kigali Airport until further notice," SN said.
SN also said it will make no further press statements to avoid any negative impact on negotiations with Rwandan authorities.
The airline usually offers a regular service between Brussels and Kigali every Tuesday and Saturday. The return flight arrives on Wednesday and Sunday mornings at Zaventem Airport.
