Relaunching RwandAir


by Sebastian Schmitz


Rwanda is a small, landlocked African country that is probably better known around the world for the wrong reason: the terrible genocide that occurred here in 1994. But continuing to saddle Rwanda with that reputation would be an injustice, because today the country is both safe and pleasant, with very friendly people. Economically, Rwanda has also developed favorably, and tourists are increasingly choosing the country as a holiday destination. The country also has its own airline, RwandAir.
