Kigali International Airport (IATA: KGL, ICAO: HRYR), is the main international airport serving Kigali, the capital of Rwanda. The airport is located on the outskirts of Kanombe, southeast of Kigali, about 5 km from the city centre by expressway and about 10km from the central business district of the Rwandan capital.
Kigali International Airport airport is located approximately 15 minutes from the Forum venue, the Kigali Convention Centre.
Taxis are available 24 hours a day at Kigali International Airport. They are mostly white with a horizontal strip of colour. Most do not have meters and any rate in Kigali or outside Kigali must be negotiated with the driver before entering the vehicle. The official rates are, from the airport, RWF 2500 for the first kilometre traveled and 600 RWF per additional kilometre.
Kigali's urban transport network is one of the most modern and best organized in Africa. Most buses today are equipped with Wi-Fi and public transport is safe and comfortable. Several lines pass on the KN5 road and provide a stop within 400 metres of the terminal. Travel rates are per single trip (RWF 300 on average), per day (600 RWF) or monthly (RWF 10,000) and are particularly advantageous.
Kigali Bus Service (KBS) operates a line providing hourly direct shuttles between Kigali Airport and the Union Trade Center (UTC) in the business district of central Kigali. The price of this shuttle is RWF 1000.
Most hotels in Kigali arrange airport shuttles for a price ranging between USD 25-35. Several VIP hosting services also propose this type of personalized service.
