The airline confirmed the development via X account formerly Twitter on Wednesday 25th October 2023.
“Today, we took delivery of our 7th Boeing 737 aircraft as we continue to enhance our fleet,” reads the message posted on X.
RwandAir had announced the anticipated acquisition of the new aircraft in June this year.
At the time, Yvonne Manzi Makolo, the CEO of RwandAir, told IGIHE that the airline is actively exploring new routes, with a focus on African destinations as well as considering opportunities in Europe.
Makolo emphasized the airline’s commitment to expanding its fleet by stating, "We are actively considering the purchase of an additional aircraft. We have an upcoming delivery of a Boeing 737 in 2023. We are dedicated to augmenting our fleet size."
In November 2022, RwandAir acquired its first freight aircraft.
The airline currently operates to a variety of destinations across East, Central, West, and Southern Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and Asia.
