Rwandair Express Airlines – AKFED Company in the bid

Excerpt …

Meanwhile, President Kagame also met the Chairman of Brussels Airlines, Vicomte Etienne Davignon, in a move to enter a bid in the ongoing privatization of the country’s national carrier, Rwandair Express.

He said he discussed with the President about the future of the airline, particularly how its capacity can be improved to hit the European skies.


The New Times has learnt that SN Brussels Airlines and the Aga Khan-owned Meridiana Airlines are battling to take over Rwandair Express in the wake of the government’s plan to privatise the company. The two companies are sending delegates to Kigali to establish government conditions on the joint venture ahead of the bidding date.

Minister Kamanzi said the government is more interested in a company that will make a complete turn-around in the company’s services and competence, while at the same time valuing the government’s opinion in the venture.
