FlyDubai soon in Rwanda according to the  Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority Director

Rwanda’s aviation sector has come of age. Besides the growing number of airlines that fly out of the Kigali International Airport (commonly known as Kanombe), the sector has embraced modern aviation operations to promote safety.

 

[...]

 

Dr Richard Masozera, the director general of the Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority (RCAA), says the expansion programme seeks to reposition the airport, enabling it to handle the growing pressure.

 

Currently, there are more than 10 commercial airlines that serve Kigali International Airport, including the national carrier, RwandAir, Kenya Airlines, Qatar, Turkish Airlines, Ethiopia Airlines and KLM. 

 

According to Masozera, more airlines have expressed interest in operating flights to and from  of Kigali, including Fly Dubai, a low-cost airline expected to start its flights soon.

 

That’s why it is important for the government to invest heavily in the aviation industry to make KIA more attractive to global airlines, according to industry experts. “For instance, ground and air traffic control facilities, as well as modern security systems need to be enhanced to ensure the sector is safe and more efficient,” they say.
