Rwanda is hoping for an increase in passenger traffic following the approval of its new Aviation Security Act on 28 April, which promises to enhance security in the aviation sector.

Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority (RCAA) director general Richard Masozera said the new act could help to entice traffic from outside of Rwanda, especially with the input offered by the East African community and the US Federal Aviation Administration.

Masozera told allafrica.com that two other laws on civil aviation regulation and the responsibilities, functioning and organisation of the RCAA will be tabled before the Rwandan Parliament this week.

The proposed laws are expected to receive approval by the end of this month.
