RwandAir of Kigali, Rwanda, took delivery of a dual-class Bombardier Q400 turboprop in late February, marking the fulfillment of an order announced last April.

RwandAir deputy CEO Jean Paul Nyirubutama accepted the aircraft during a delivery ceremony at Bombardier’s Toronto assembly site. Plans call for the airplane, which features a 67-seat interior, to replace RwandAir’s 37-seat de Havilland Canada Dash 8-200.
