Rwanda’s ministry of infrastructure has said that works on Bugesera International Airport will be launched tomorrow.

According to the ministry for Infrastructure, the launch will involve the official ground-breaking and laying of a foundation at the construction site.

The new Airport will be located in southeastern Rwanda, in Bugesera District, near the town of Nyamata. It will become Rwanda’s largest International Airport, serving commercial flights destined to and from the greater Kigali metropolitan area and act as a hub for Rwandair’s growth strategy and commercial airlines serving the region.

Through a public-private partnerships (PPP) model, the Rwandan government promised to provide the necessary support for the success of this project.

The project with initial investment of $ 418 million shall be fast tracked so as to be completed by December 2018.

Once completed, Bugesera International airport will become Rwanda’s largest International Airport, serving commercial flights. It is also expected to boost the country’s economic growth and development.

When completed, it will complement Kigali International Airport, which operates its maximum capacity.
