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.
