RwandAir, has been granted a licence to start direct flight services to Guangzhou, China. This follows the approval of its licence for direct flights to the US

Both the US and China routes are likely to start towards the end of the year, with flight details still to be finalised. However, RwandAir has confirmed that arrival for the US flight will take place in New York, at either JFK or Newark airport. 

Thembela Dladla, country manager for Rwandair, told eTNW: “There are limited flights connecting the continent to both New York and China. Kigali has the mid-hemisphere advantage, and therefore caters to the whole of Africa for a connecting flight.”
