For this episode, you find me on location in the land of a thousand hills, Rwanda.
AviaDev’s relationship with Rwanda and RwandAir goes back to 2016 when AviaDev was born in Kigali.
My guest today is the CEO of RwandAir, Yvonne Manzi Makolo who took the reins of the airline in 2018.
Yvonne comes from a telecommunications background rather than aviation, although she’s now firmly immersed in our community and the airline continues to develop with new routes, new aircraft, and a renewed focus on cargo operations.
In this podcast we discuss:
✈️ would Yvonne consider herself
an #avgeek ?
✈️ what’s the current network strategy?
✈️ what’s driving the new focus on cargo business with the arrival of a Boeing 737-800 freighter?
✈️ the latest on the partnership/ strategic investment from Qatar
✈️ Yvonne’s priorities as she becomes the first African and first female to chair the board of governors
✈️ The impact of the Arsenal F.C sponsorship from Visit Rwanda on traffic and awareness
⚽️ Is Yvonne an Arsenal fan?
