Kigali International Airport in Rwanda will be transformed into a modern information and communication technology-supported airport, under a new agreement.

A memorandum of understanding (MoU) signed between the Rwanda Development Board / Information Technology and Rwanda Civil Aviation Authority (RCAA) will involve the installation of a modern flight information display system (FIDS) and an aeronautic message handling system (AMHS) within the airport.

In addition, vehicle parking automation, the extension of satellite distribution 2G, capacity building, e-documents and closed-circuit television (CCTV) systems will be deployed at the airport.

The two agencies will collaborate to develop communication navigation surveillance and air traffic management capabilities that enable RCCA to deliver reliable services.

The partners will initially start with a $1m project which include the modern parking facilities and flight management systems. larger projects are expected to start within the next two to three years.

Kigali International Airport is the only international gateway in Africa, and is one of the 17 airports chosen by the Economic Commission for Africa as a future hub network on the continent.
