Sources with the Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport said the flight would be operated by RwandAir and the first flight will take off from Guangzhou on June 18.

Round trips are going to be operated three times a week on Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday with an Airbus A330 aircraft.

Yvonne Manzi Makolo, chief executive officer of RwandAir, said the new air route is expected to bring more opportunities as Africa and China have seen increasing trade volume and demand for air capacity.

Guangzhou Baiyun International Airport sources said Guangzhou would be the second destination of RwandAir in the Far East, following Mumbai.
