"Premier avion long-courrier de la compagnie, flyCAA mise sur son rayon d’action et sa capacité (jusqu’à 250 sièges) pour soutenir ses ambitions de croissance. La compagnie entend, en effet, construire un solide réseau africain et se déployer sur des routes internationales, notamment vers Bruxelles en Belgique.

Mais pour le moment, flyCAA ne peut prétendre desservir le vieux continent, car inscrite – comme toutes les compagnies aériennes immatriculées en République démocratique du Congo (RDC) – sur la liste noire de l’Union européenne (UE). Cette possibilité ne peut être envisagée qu’à condition que l’appareil soit réimmatriculé dans un autre pays non blacklisté par l’UE avec un équipage expatrié. Si cette condition est remplie, le transporteur viendra alors briser le monopole de longue date détenu par Brussels Airlines sur le corridor Kinshasa – Bruxelles."

So confirmed that it wants to launch to Brussels and the airline HAS to reregister it somewhere else to fly it to Europe.

Famous CNN journalist Richard Quest is currently in Rwanda. According to his Twitter page, he made a stop at Brussels.

I guess he has flown from Wahsginton to Brussels with United and then to Kigali with Brussels Airlines

Heading to #rwanda tonight via BRU. Coming face to face with the complexities of covid intl travel. Tests within 120 hrs, sworn statements, health declarations for both Brussels & Rwanda. It is very challenging to find the exact info.
Morning from Brussels. Shame to biz lounge closed, even for sitting in. Ahh well can always make myself comfy somewhere.
