Rwanda is heavily reliant on road transport, while water and air are marginally used. Air Transport in Rwanda plays the dual role of enhancing economic integration in regional and global markets and of promoting tourism. Aviation infrastructures comprise of one international airport – Kigali International Airport (KGL), which is served by five international airlines as well as national carrier – RwandAir. Other airlines that service Rwanda include Air Burundi, Kenya Airways, Ethiopian Airlines as well as Air Uganda and South African Airways. With little competition and a small market, the cost of air transport is higher than international average. Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority is the body in control of aviation movements and regulations in the country.
