Rwanda's national carrier, RwandAir, begins flights between Kigali and Harare tomorrow, in another vote of confidence of Zimbabwe as a destination. The carrier will be flying four times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays.

The coming on board of RwandAir is on the back of concerted efforts by the Civil Aviation Authority of Zimbabwe (CAAZ) to lure airlines that used to fly to Zimbabwe and new carriers.

At its peak in 1999, 42 airlines flew into Zimbabwe. The number included eight cargo planes. Currently 20 airlines are flying into Zimbabwe.

RwandAir operates one of the youngest fleet on the African continent and flies to over 20 destinations across Africa.
