RwandAir’s new B737-800s represents progress and national pride; Central Africa's standout carrier

Rwanda, a country little known for its aviation achievements, is now home to Africa’s first B737-800, complete with Boeing’s new Sky Interior product. The national carrier plans to use the equipment to increase capacity to Dubai, which it currently serves via Mombasa.

Rwanda’s infrastructure and transport system is underdeveloped, nevertheless the travel and tourism sector is helping to drive the country forward.
