RwandAir Takes Delivery of First Dedicated Boeing 737F
RwandAir has joined the league of passenger airlines that operate dedicated cargo fleet. The East African airline, today, took delivery of its first dedicated cargo aircraft as the carrier expands its fleet.
The Boeing 737-800 SF, which is painted in RwandAir’s first cargo livery, will be based at the carrier’s Kigali hub.
The new jet will allow the Rwandan carrier to further expand its cargo operation, which has been on the rise.
RwandAir will operate the new freighter to a number of key destinations in Africa and the Middle East, including Johannesburg, Nairobi, and UAE.
Yvonne Makolo, CEO of RwandAir said: “The delivery of our dedicated cargo aircraft is a huge milestone in RwandAir’s fleet expansion plans.
“Cargo is of ever-increasing importance for the aviation industry, and as a landlocked country, we recognize the importance and value of good cargo connections.
“We want to ensure that Africa is seamlessly connected to the world, driving economic growth and valuable trade deals.”
RwandAir is renowned for its excellent customer service for which it recently RwandAir won the award for ‘Best Airline Staff in Africa’ at Skytrax’s 2022 World Airline Awards, for a second successive year.
RwandAir currently operates passenger flights to 28 regional and international destinations, including Lagos, Abuja, Accra, Dakar, Lusaka, Nairobi, Johannesburg, Cape Town, Dubai, Mumbai, Brussels, and Guangzhou.
