Rwanda makes a move on European market with new air agreement

Rwanda has signed a bilateral air service agreement with Italy, in a bid to increase and ease travel between the two nations.

On Monday, August 20, Rwanda’s Minister for Infrastructure, Claver Gatete, met with Italy’s Ambassador to Rwanda, Domenico Fornara, to sign the final agreement. The negotiations had taken place in December when representatives from the two countries met in Colombo, Sri Lanka.

The agreement will allow for commercial flights between the countries, allowing designated airlines of the countries to operate commercial flights that cover the transport of passengers and cargo.
