RwandAir has added a third long-haul aircraft to its fleet, an Airbus A330-200 registered 9XR-WX.
The plane, which offers 30 business class seats and 222 in economy, will enable the Rwandan carrier to expand its long-haul operation, adding flights between Europe, the Middle East and Africa.
Customers will be able to choose from 30 seats in ‘business’ class and 222 seats in ‘economy’ class, giving a greater choice of flexibility.
RwandAir’s new wide-body jet will be used on services to key destinations in Europe, Africa and the Middle East, including London, Brussels, Lagos and Dubai.
The addition brings the airline’s fleet to 13, comprising three long-haul, one freighter and nine short-haul aircraft.
RwandAir CEO, Yvonne Makolo said the new aircraft would allow the airline to continue its route expansion and offer customers more connections. The airline currently operates to destinations across East, Central, West and Southern Africa, the Middle East, Europe and Asia from its hub at Kigali International Airport.
“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,” she said.
