    News | 21 May 2014 12:11 | Murdo Morrison

    ​Charter operator GainJet  is to open a base in Kigali, Rwanda in a bid to “supply the African market with a true ultra-long range VIP travel experience”. The Athens-based company will station a 2012 Gulfstream G550 in the Rwandan capital, which it says “can link directly the US East Coast and South East Asia to many African capitals”. GainJet president Capt Ramsey Shaban says there is a gap in the market for “true VIP operators” in east and central Africa. “Kigali is a natural aviation hub which sits at the centre of the continent and the government of Rwanda has offered us the right incentives,” he says.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/EBACE-VIP-operators-Rwanda-move-is-Africas-Gain-399581/
