Since Kenya Airways introduced the New York route last year, it has attracted tough competition from regional airlines which are eyeing a share of the lucrative American market. 

RwandAir is planning to launch direct flights to the US and is currently seeking approval from the relevant American body for Category One Status. Once it is allowed to fly to the US, the airline will directly compete with KQ for passengers.
