RWANDAIR’S NEW B737-800 TO FEATURE INFLIGHT ENTERTAINMENT
Information was received this morning that RwandAir has signed up for the installation of inflight entertainment for their two new B737-800, which will be delivered in July and September this year. The system will permit travellers flying with the new Boeings to watch the latest Hollywood blockbuster films, classic movies, news and series and will of course also feature audio channels.
Both aircraft will incidentally be delivered with the ‘new look’ interior Boeing has been introducing, giving a roomier impression to passengers and more space in the overhead lockers. Information at hand in fact indicates that the ‘new look’ interior will become the first on the African continent, although other airlines with B737 NG’s on order have reportedly also now opted to have the interior outfitted with the ‘latest’ on the market.
The two Boeings will reportedly be deployed on the routes from Kigali to West Africa, to Dubai via Mombasa and to Johannesburg, although – especially during the launch phase, they may also make ‘appearances’ on the East African network destinations like Nairobi.
The inflight entertainment will be provided by IFE Services which have been contracted by RwandAir.
