RwandAir appoints local GSA
AFRICAN airline RwandAir has announced the appointment of CVFR Travel Group offshoot Airline Rep Services as its General Sales Agent (GSA) in Australia.
The company has established a Sydney-based call centre to service the needs of local travel agents and customers, with Airline Rep Services MD Roheena Gidwani saying the agreement was “an amazing opportunity to partner with RwandAir and its growth story for the ANZ region”.
RwandAir is based in the Rwandan capital Kigali, and offers long-haul services to destinations such as Dubai, Mumbai, Brussels, London and Johannesburg.
The carrier’s CEO Yvonne Manzi Makolo said Airline Rep Services had been selected to handle RwandAir’s sales and distribution in Australia and New Zealand “due to their standards and wealth of experience in air travel management.
“We are challenging them to capitalise on their strengths and capabilities to help maximise our sales and revenues, promote the airline’s presence in both markets and connect our customers to over six destinations in Africa, Middle East, Europe and Asia.”
RwandAir operates 12 aircraft including two A330s, with plans to further expand the airline’s network to include Guangzhou, Tel Aviv and New York.
Other Airline Rep Services clients include Malindo Air, Batik Air and Jet Airways.
