Operating from Kigali, Rwanda, as its hub in the heart of Africa, RwandAir is one of the fastest growing airlines on the African continent. RwandAir operates in over 20 locations, spanning Africa, Middle East, Europe and Asia, with planned expansion to the US and China. RwandAir is a member airline of the International Air Transportation Association (IATA) and is an EASA, IOSA and ISAGO, certified operator.
In 2018 the ICAO audited Rwanda’s aviation sector, and it was found to be operating well above the average global standards. In parallel to this, Rwanda is part of the Single African Transport Market Initiative (SAATM), aiming to improve intra-Africa efficiencies and competitiveness. These factors provide a very positive outlook for pilots looking to fly in Africa with RwandAir.

We have a dedicated RwandAir team based in Europe who will ensure you receive the very best service while living and working in the vibrant and colourful city of Kigali, Rwanda.

RwandAir Pilot Testimonial
First Officer Kuimba has been on assignment with Rishworth Aviation at RwandAir. He shared some of his thoughts of his time working with Rishworth and RwandAir so far.
“Since I began my contract with RwandAir, which is an exciting airline to join as it is fast growing, I am pleased with the service of Rishworth. In 8 months since I uploaded my CV with Rishworth online, I have found a new home with RwandAir airlines in Kigali. From the onset, with Cristina who's my agent from Rishworth, she made me aware of the various opportunities that suited me and was always available either by email or Skype call to attend to my needs.
Rishworth is able to provide me with everything I need very efficiently and in a short period of time.
I feel truly blessed to be with Rishworth who thought about such nitty gritties before I had left my home base for Kigali. I feel comfortable to be in Kigali as well as it seems like everything was aligned for me to be here, with so much promise for career progression, it seems like a match made in heaven.
I can safely say I have found a reliable partner with Rishworth Aviation.”
