Bombardier Receives Q400 Order from RwandAir

African carrier RwandAir signed a firm purchase agreement to acquire one Q400 NextGen turboprop, a $33 million order according to current Bombardier list prices.
The airline will become the 12th operator of the Q400 in Africa, adding the aircraft to its fleet of Bombardier CRJ-900s, Dash-8s and Boeing 737s. The Q400 will have a dual-class 67-seat cabin layout.

“As demand for domestic and regional travel in Africa accelerates, our 67-seat, dual-class Q400 NextGen aircraft will ensure RwandAir is well positioned to offer increased capacity on popular routes that are being opened and serviced with our 37-seat Bombardier Dash 8-200 aircraft,” said John Mirenge, CEO of RwandAir.
