RwandAir’s new Boeing 737-800NB aircraft is expected to land at Kigali International Airport today.
The purchase makes Rwandair the first African airline to own and operate the Boeing Sky Interior series.
“Today is a proud day for RwandAir as well as the country as we are the first in all of Africa to own and operate such an aircraft,” RwandAir CEO, John Mirenge, said.
“This aircraft that has such unique interior, will set RwandAir apart from our competitors by bringing a new, unmatched flying experience to our valued customers,” he added.
The new Boeing Sky Interior introduces new cove lighting and curving architecture that creates a distinctive entryway.
Passengers will enjoy a more open cabin and a soft blue-sky overhead simulated by light-emitting diode (LED) lighting.
The new interior also brings new, modern, sculpted sidewalls and window features meant to enhance passengers’ exterior views.
