Ethiopian Airlines and RwandAir Eye Strategic Partnership

According to ATW, Ethiopian Airlines is negotiating with Rwanda’s national carrier RwandAir for a 49% stake in the airline.

“Ethiopian Airlines and RwandAir are discussing expanding their cooperation. The discussion is still at an early stage and we have not yet progressed to the equity discussion level,” said Tewolde Gebremariam Ethiopian Airlines CEO.

State-owned RwandAir continues to establish its Central Africa hub in the capital Kigali. The carrier is seeking a strategic partner to help boost its competitiveness.

Ethiopian’s interest in RwandAir is part of the carrier’s Vision 2025 business plan.

The Star Alliance member has already developed hubs in West Africa by ASKY Airlines in Lomé and in Southern Africa through Malawian Airlines in Lilongwe.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
