I flew in RwandAir recently and found their service quite competitive. I would recommend them to also think of some other African routes where there’s growth potential. With the big number of Africans who can afford flying, those strategic routes will make the airplane dramatically successful.
If RwandAir can service some West African routes and connect them to the South, then we have a giant in making. Dubai, Shanghai routes are important and complementary to the intra-Africa routes as well.
Flying Frankfurt and Amsterdam should be sufficient, but expectations should be low, as these are mature markets and competition is high; but if you do it right and build good reputation on the African side, travelers will start to trust your services on Europe bound flights simply because they will understand that you do it by principle , not because you are compelled to by various regulations in EU.
According to how I see the carrier doing, I would undoubtedly invest in RwandAir’s shares if they were floated.

With the new acquisitions RwandAir can go all the way
