RwandAir has expanded its fleet with the delivery of its third long-haul aircraft from Airbus.

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 its key destinations in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, including London, Brussels, Lagos and Dubai.


The addition of the new Airbus will bring the African airline’s fleet to 13 consisting of three long-haul, one freighter and nine short-haul aircraft.
Last November, the Rwandan airline received its first dedicated freighter aircraft, as the carrier highlighted the ever-increasing importance of cargo in Rwanda and the aviation industry as a whole.
