Following on the Bilateral Air Service Agreement (BASA) between Rwanda and Togo, the governments of Rwanda and Angola has now also signed an agreement opening up the air space between the two countries.

Under the agreement, RwandAir, and Angola’s national airline, TAAG, will each be allocated seven frequencies a week on either side.

The agreement was signed between the State Minister in charge of Transport, Jean de Dieu Uwihanganye, and Angola’s Minister of Transport, Augusto da Silva Tomas.

The signing took place in Kigali on May 23.

Uwihanganye noted that the fifth freedom aviation agreements will allow Rwanda access to all the airports in Angola, one of the biggest economies in Africa.

“This is an opportunity for all of us to benefit from trade, mining and tourism in both countries. Angola has an advanced mining sector which we want develop here as well” he said.

He called upon the private sector to use the opportunity to export agricultural produce to Angola.
