RwandAir and Bombardier Aerospace announced (19-Mar-2012) the signature of a firm order for two 75-seat CRJ900s. The transaction also includes options on two additional CRJ900s. RwandAir will become the first operator of CRJ900 aircraft in Eastern Africa. Based on the list price of the CRJ900, the firm-order contract is valued at approximately USD89 million, increasing to USD185 million should both options be exercised. Operating from its Kigali hub, RwandAir’s fleet includes larger jet aircraft, as well as two 50-seat CRJ200s and a Bombardier Dash 8-200 turboprop. The carrier serves most East African Community capital cities with daily flights and operates to Johannesburg, Brazzaville, Libreville and Dubai. [more - original PR]
