Qatar to service Burundi


According to eturbonews, the Burundi government has signed a new air service agreement with Qatar Airways, allowing the two airlines (Qatar Airways and Air Burundi) to fly up to seven times a week between Doha and Bujumbura.

The agreement covers passenger and cargo services and allows for intermediate stops en route from and to Bujumbura. Burundi is currently the least-connected country in Eastern Africa, with regular air services from Europe only provided by Brussels Airlines, whilst within Africa there are services provided by Kenya Airways, Ethiopian Airlines and RwandAir. Burundi is also serviced by Air Uganda within the wider Eastern African region and by South African Airways from within Southern Africa.
