According to the Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority, in 2012, 500, 000 passengers travelled through Kigali Airport compaired to 376,319 passengers in 2011.

Over 300 flights are operated each week at Kigali, while in 2008, the airport handled about 60 flights a week.

Currently, Kenya Airways is largest foreign airlines to serve Rwanda, in terms of flights frequencies.

The airline provides 4 flights a day
Since 2010, Air Uganda, KLM, Turkish Airlines and Qatar Airways started flights to Rwanda, while South Africa Airways resumed flights to Rwanda.

Some airlines such as KLM, Turkish Airlines, Ethiopian Airlines, Kenya Airways or Brussels Airlines have added flights to Kigali, to meet the demand.

This summer there will be 17 weekly flights between Rwanda and Europe.

KLM will provide a daily service, while Brussels Airlines and Turkish Airlines will fly 5 times a week. During the summer 2008, there were only 4 flights a week.

But the key player at Kigali, is by the far, the national flag carrier.
Indeed, 5 years ago, the airline was nearly filing for bankruptcy.

After a major restructuring, RwandAir can be now considered as a reliable airline.

RwandAir has spread its wings across Central, East and West Africa.
