U.S.-based aviation services provider Tempus Jets has partnered with the government of Rwanda to establish a stronger private aviation presence in the region. The Newport News, Va. company announced plans to establish FBO services at Kigali International Airport as well as position a number of turbine-powered aircraft there for on-demand charter use.

“Rwanda’s strategic location, business-friendly environment and exciting future business growth potential were the key factors leading to this partnership,” said company CEO Scott Terry. “We are confident this investment in private aviation in the East African region, particularly Rwanda, will result in an exceptional return on our investment and deployed assets.”
