In an interview with The New Times, Mirenge said talks between the U.K. And Rwandan authorities are near their conclusion and that there’s a strong possibility the launch will be before 2017.

The carrier took delivery of its first A330-200 last month, expecting its first A330-300 to be delivered in November.

RwandAir has been using its only widebody aircraft for flights from its hub in Kigali t Lagos, Accra, Dubai and Mombasa. Flights to Mumbai are also scheduled to launch before the end of this year.
