(KGL) Kigali Intl Airport

Kigali International eyes passenger growth
East African BW

Passengers through Kigali International Airport (KIA), Rwanda's largest airport are expected to rise by 29% next year, civil aviation agency says. Passenger traffic through the Kigali cantered airport are expected to hit 450,000 next year from 350,000 this year, according to the RwandaCivil Aviation Authority (RCAA), a public agency that regulates air transport services in the small East African country. At the same time, the airlines flying in and out of Kigali are expected to rise to eight from the current six.

New entrants will include Turkish Airlines, which has confirmed opening of Istanbul -Kigali Flights beginning April 2012 and South Africa Airways (SAA), which has shown interest in flying back to Kigali starting this October but has not yet made a formal request. These will be adding to passenger carriers such as RwandAir, Air Uganda, Kenya Airways, Ethiopian Airlines, KLM and Brussels Airlines.

The rise in airlines and the subsequent passengers to and out of Kigali is attributed to the increasing attractiveness of the country for investment opportunities and the first growing tourism and hospitality sector. Rwanda was named the best business reformer globally in the World Bank's Doing Business Report 2009 and continues to be the leader in this area in the East African region. Since then, businesses from across the world have developed curiosity into the land-locked country and some have expressed interests in investing here.

This has raised the number of people visiting the small green country.
Similarly, the gorilla rich, hilly and fast developing country has seen its international and regional visitors increase in the far recent past and they continue to grow. This has resulted into a boom in construction especially in the areas of hotel and accommodation facilities.

The Public Relations Officer at the RCAA Mr. Tony Barigye told East African Business Week that the country is also spending US$15 million on expansion of the airport. This follows plans to construct a bigger airport in Eastern Rwanda less than an hour drive from the capital Kigali. Plans for construction of the New Bugesera International Airport (NBIA) are at advanced stages with final detailed technical studies expected this month.

Mr. Barigye said expansion of the Kigali airport means more space for passengers. "We're trying to make it more spacious," he said in a phone interview last Thursday. The airport will also have passage for disabled passengers, he added. Recently, the airport saw inauguration of a new
VIP lounge which is equipped with more space and IT services such as
fast wireless internet. The $200,000 plus lounge also consists of a restaurant. Mr. Barigye could not disclose the airport of revenue forecasts expectations as a result of expected increase in airlines and traffic.

TURKISH CARGO continues to add new destinations to its fast growing network.

TURKISH CARGO very recently launched freighter services to Saudi Arabian capital Riyadh in August. As of 20th September scheduled cargo flights to Jeddah will be launched and the new generation A330-200F freighters with a capacity of 68 tons are used for this service.

While TURKISH CARGO expands its flight network with scheduled freighter flights to Riyadh (RUH) and Jeddah (JED), Turkish Airlines also launch passenger flights to Dammam, Saudi Arabia as of 12th September.

With frequencies of 20 to Jeddah, 7 to Riyadh and 13 to Medinah in a week, TURKISH CARGO uses the available capacity of the belly hold of Turkish Airlines passenger aircrafts for cargo carriage.

TURKISH CARGO’s expansion in the African region continues with Ethiopia’s capital Addis Ababa (ADD). Turkish Cargo, currently serves to Algeria, Cairo, Casablanca and Tripoli (suspended) with scheduled freighter flights, is now adding Addis Ababa to cargo destinations. Addis Ababa freighter services operated with new A330-200F freighter, will commence as of 20th September and is expected to add great contribution to the region.

Valid as of 20th September please find the Istanbul-Jeddah-Addis Ababa-Istanbul freighter schedule below.
