I asked Brussels Airlines about the future of their relations with RwandAir as a newcomer on the BRU-KGL route. Geert Sciot replied that:
  • Brussels Airlines and RwandAir will continue their codeshare which is in place on the SN flights and has not been denounced by either party.
  • Brussels Airlines might examine the possibility to codeshare on the RwandAir flights, but nothing has been decided yet.
  • The Brussels Airlines schedules will remain unchanged (6 weekly flights), despite the increase of the offer due to the arrival of RwandAir.
Furthermore, in addition to the point-to-point traffic,Brussels Airlines links Kigali to the whole European market (UK, France, Germany, etc.) and even North America. Therefore SN sees no need to reduce its own traffic to KGL.

Interesting!
Any info on what the bilateral agreement allows to each airline?
