Construction of Rwanda's Bugesera Airport Starts in 2017

Construction of the highly anticipated Bugesera International Airport is scheduled to start in June next year, following the signing of an agreement between the Rwandan government and Mota Engil Engenharia e Construcao Africa, a Portuguese firm in sectors of civil construction, port operations and logistics.

The two parties signed the agreement on September 1, at the Ministry of Finance and Economic Affairs.

The agreement was signed between the recently formed Aviation Travel and Logistics Holdings Limited (ATL) -on behalf of the government- and Manuel Mota, the Chief Executive of the firm.
