RwandAir has taken delivery of its first dedicated cargo aircraft as the carrier expands its fleet.
RwandAir will operate the new freighter to a number of key destinations in Africa and the Middle East, including Johannesburg, Nairobi, and the United Arab Emirates.
Yvonne Makolo, RwandAir CEO, 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 recognise 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.”
