// // // RwandAir - About
We began operations on 1st December 2002 as the new national carrier under the name Rwandair Express (passenger Air transportation as the core activity) for Rwanda with a concession to carry out airport ground handling (ancillary activity) at Kigali International airport, Kanombe. In March 2009, we registered a new trademark “RwandAir” which is our current operating name.

Operating from Kigali as our hub, the airline boasts of a young fleet of two Boeing 737-800NG, two Boeing 737-700NG, two CRJ900NG and a Dash8-200 and has chosen to provide a memorable travel experience to every single passenger on our routes. Later this year we will take delivery of a brand new Bombardier Q-400NextGen.
