RwandAir has expanded its fleet with the delivery of its third long-haul aircraft, an Airbus A330-200.

The aircraft, which is based at the carrier’s Kigali hub, will allow the Rwandan carrier to further expand its long-haul operation, with additional flights operating between Europe, Middle East and Africa.

“We are excited to be expanding our fleet further with the addition of our third long-haul aircraft,” said Yvonne Makolo, RwandAir CEO. “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.
