The national carrier plans to use the equipment to increase capacity to Dubai, which it currently serves via Mombasa. RwandAir is a growing airline and although it faces many struggles in its homeland, it has launched three new routes in 2011 alone. Rwanda's infrastructure and transport system is underdeveloped, nevertheless the travel and tourism sector is helping to drive the country forward.
