New A330-200 aircraft for RwandAir

RwandAir has expanded its fleet with the delivery of its third long-haul aircraft, an Airbus A330-200, registered 9XR-WX, based at the carrier’s Kigali hub.

The aircraft will allow Rwandan Airlines to further expand its long-haul flights with additional flights operating between Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Yvonne Makolo, RwandAir CEO, said: “We are excited to be expanding our fleet further with the addition of our third long-haul aircraft. Its addition will allow us to continue our route expansion and offer customers even more connections.”

RwandAir will operate the new wide-body aircraft to key destinations in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, including London, Brussels, Lagos and Dubai.

Last November, Rwandan Airlines took delivery of its first dedicated cargo aircraft, highlighting the importance of cargo for Rwanda and the aviation industry in general.
