RWANDAIR SELECTS SITA’S IT SOLUTIONS
The Rwandan national airline has entered into a long term arrangement with SITA to provide their new e-Commerce platform for web based transactions and secure payments with credit cards or e-transfers. The system launch date will be sometime in April this year, when other modalities have been resolved and final preparations made to seamlessly align the carrier’s own systems with those of SITA.
Other good news at the same time are that RwandAir is going to introduce the Horizon Frequent Flyer Programme of SITA, giving more benefits to their faithful travellers, especially important now that destinations and flight frequencies have grown in leaps and bounds during 2010.
Rwanda has last year been connected by fibre optic cable to the ‘international grid’ of super fast internet connections, allowing the national airline to push ahead with their ‘e-project’ and connect to travel agents within the country and the wider region with ease.
Watch this space to learn when the system will go ‘live’.
