Egypt’s flagship carrier EgyptAir will start flying to Rwanda’s Kigali twice weekly, it said on Saturday.

“The national carrier of Egypt has put in place ambitious plans to expand to the strongly rising countries in Africa, such as Rwanda, one of Africa's new hubs,” Ahmed Adel, the chairman and CEO of EgyptAir Holding, said in a press release.

EgyptAir said it will be using “the latest types [of planes], featuring personal screens in business and economy,” according to the chairman and CEO of EgyptAir Airlines Ashram El-Kholy, quoted in the release.

The carrier said the flights from Cairo to Kigali would run on Thursday and Saturday, while flights from Kigali north will be on Friday and Sunday.
