NAS-RwandAir to unveil two new lounges at Kigali airport

NAS-RwandAir Ltd (NASRwandAir) has said that it has completed construction and development of two new airport lounges, which it plans to officially unveil in the next few days.

The firm, a joint venture of National Aviation Services (NAS) and national airline RwandAir, is tasked with managing all lounges at the Kigali International Airport.

It was created early this year.

Denise Rwakayija, the company’s General Manager, told The New Times that the new lounges will complement the existing lounge which didn’t have enough capacity to handle the increasing traffic.

“We had the existing Pearl Lounge at departure area and the new lounges that we have completed are the Dream Lounge, which is also at departure, and another one in the arrival side. They will handle the growing traffic,” she said.

The new arrival lounge is a walk-in lounge and NAS- RwandAir officials say KIA is one of the first airports in the East African region to introduce such a kind of lounge

With the arrival lounge, premium passengers can pay a certain fee and walk into an arrivals lounge.

“What we are trying to do is to create a world-class experience at the airport. Basically, when a passenger comes from Europe, the Americas or another (developed) country, what they find here is what they are used to see in other world-class airports,” Rwakayija said.

She added that the changes and the innovation they are bringing are well aligned to this focus.
