Rwanda’s new airport an attractive proposition as RwandAir takes off

Several different factors are drawing the attention of airport operators and investors to Africa – the investment by TAV in North Africa, the rise of the private sector in South Africa, new airport construction announcements, 100 companies reportedly seeking to bid to develop a new terminal at Nairobi Airport, increasing passenger traffic in all parts of the continent and even the fact that ACI has chosen to co-locate its annual general assembly this year with the regional Africa association in Marrakech. Perhaps the most notable event momentarily is the search by the Rwanda Government for a private sector investor/operator for the new USD350 million Bugesera International Airport. Not so long ago such a suggestion would have been met with scorn but, riven by civil war and genocide between 1990 and 1993, Rwanda has recovered, at least economically, better than anyone could have hoped.
