The Royal Swazi National Airways Corporation (RSNAC) airline will fly to 10 countries - nine in Africa and one in Asia.Bilateral Air Service Agreements between government and the new destination countries have been signed.
Courtesy of these agreements, the RSNAC airline, which used to operate two aircraft (Fokker 100 and Fokker 28), will fly to destinations such as the United Arab Emirates, Kenya, Ethiopia, Zambia, Rwanda*, South Africa, Namibia, Tanzania, Uganda and Botswana among others.
Swaziland airline authorities are yet to purchase an aircraft though. Recently, government indicated plans to acquire through outright purchase or lease an airplane. The aircraft that were in consideration were those in the category 90- to 100-seater jets that cost in the region of E700 million. All these developments come in the wake of the completion of the Sikhuphe International Airport, which is part of the Millennium Projects worth E3 billion.
