“On the outlook for 2013, he said that the entry of a foreign competitor in the aviation catering business in Nigeria has got the company geared up to meet the challenges that come with it. “As such, we are poised to expand to Rwanda and shall continue to explore opportunities to diversify our operations, improve cost management, raise the level of quality and create competitive pricing structures”.

It’s too early to know when the firm will begin operation in Rwanda. But it seems that contacts have already begun . In deed, in November 2012 the ASL board meet President Paul Kagame in Kigali and the company provides services to  RwandAir in Nigeria. Contrary to Uganda, Kenya and Tanzania which are “served” by major companies such as SkyChefs, Newrest or Servair, Rwandan Airlines Catering market is very small. The arrival of ASL will probably boost the sector.
