RwandAir is seeking authority to fly to New York (JFK) via Accra. The airline is seeking 5th Freedom Traffic Rights to use Accra as a stoping point from Kigali. If approved, the airline would use its Airbus A330s.
The airline on December 1, 2002 began operations as the new national carrier under the name Rwandair Express for Rwanda with a concession to carry out airport ground handling (ancillary activity) at Kigali International Airport.
In March 2009, the airline registered a new trademark “RwandAir” which is the current operating name.
Operating from Kigali as the hub at the heart of Africa, RwandAir is one of the fastest growing airlines and operates one of the youngest and state of the art fleet on the African continent which comprises of four Boeing 737-800s, two Boeing 737-700s, two Bombardier CRJ900s, two Bombardier Q400s all in dual class configuration and two new triple class Airbus A330s.
The airline reaches out to twenty-six cities in Western, Central, Eastern and Southern Africa, the Middle East, Asia and Europe.
