Jean de Dieu Uwihanganye, the State Minister in charge of Transport, said that national carrier will launch its flights to Guangzhou in May.
“There are a lot of expectations for both the airline and the country,” he said while confirming remarks by the Chinese envoy to Rwanda Henry Rao that a memorandum of understanding between the two countries, allowing RwandAir to fly to China, was about to be completed.
The flight to Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport in Guangdong Province, China will be tagged on the Mumbai, India route, he noted. He, however, said they were looking at possibilities of having direct flights in the long-run.
Hope it will be succesful considering the fierce competition in East Africa.
For now a 738 is sent to BOM.
