RwandAir, established in 2002 is the National Carrier for the Republic of Rwanda. Considering that Rwanda is a land locked country, RwandAir was created as a means of connecting the country to the outside world to facilitate and promote investment and tourism. Indeed RwandAir mission statement is “to provide unsurpassed, safe and reliable services in air transportation, including strategically linking Rwanda with the outside world, while ensuring a fair return on investment.” The majority share holding of the company is the Government of Rwanda.
From inception, the airline operated wet leased aircrafts from other airlines. However, in the more recent past, the shareholders of RwandAir decided to make RwandAir a robust airline with its own aircrafts. Indeed in December 2009, the Government purchased two used CRJ-200. In the same month, RwandAir signed a contract with The Boeing Company for the purchase of two new B737-800NGs which were delivered in August and October 2011 respectively. In June and August 2010; RwandAir took delivery of two B737-500 on a dry lease basis from GECAS. In addition to this fleet, RwandAir is currently operating a Dash 8-100 wet lease. The airline is currently in discussions to further increase its fleet and expand its routes in Africa and beyond.
In line with these recent developments and expansion, RwandAir is interested in hiring hands-on industry experts to fill leadership positions at RwandAir in order to support management at all levels in realizing its Vision and Mission and ensure smooth on job training of in-house staff and seamless capacity building for a period of one year renewable. RwandAir recognizes the importance of the Capacity building in running an airline and in achieving this goal. The ability to provide off site technical support and expertise is key for the successful implementation of this project.
