Its first airline, the company said in a statement, will arrive in the South Sudan capital on 21 September.

“The airline [RwandAir] has opted to launch with three weekly flights on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday. The first flight is set to attract passengers, many passengers from both ends, Kigali and Juba,” the statement reads in part.

The airline company, however, said it chose to operate the Bombardier CRJ 900NG, the only of its kind in the region.

“This 75 seats aircraft is one of two that were purchased from factory in November of 2012 and serves daily flights to Nairobi and Entebbe via Kigali”, it stressed.

Juba, reportedly become RwandAir’s fifteenth destination since it re-branded in 2009 to its current operating name.

RwandAir is reportedly one of the fastest growing airlines on the African continent, operating in East Africa, Central Africa, West Africa, Southern Africa and the Middle East from its main base at Kigali International Airport in Kigali.

Rwanda is a small, landlocked East African country that has registered economic success, nearly two decades after a genocide in the regions claimed over 800,000 lives.
