Posted 11 May 2015 · Add Comment

Rwanda's national carrier, RwandAir, has selected Rockwell Collins' ARINC common use passenger processing systems (CUPPS) and related technologies to support the airline's strong passenger growth.

Under a new, five-year contract, RwandAir will implement the company’s ARINC vMUSE common use check-in platform, ARINC AirVue Flight Information Display System (FIDS) and AirDB 7, the latest generation ARINC Airport Operational Database (AODB) system. 

“We selected Rockwell Collins because we were impressed by its reputation for excellent customer service, as well as the history of successful project implementations for other airports in our region,” said John Mirenge, chief executive officer at RwandAir. 

“The African aviation industry has been experiencing steady growth over the past several years,” said Paul Hickox, managing director, IMS EMEA for Rockwell Collins.  “RwandAir, one of Africa’s fastest growing airlines and a key pillar in the development of Rwanda’s economy, is playing a key role in successfully developing Kigali International Airport as a new hub at the heart of Africa. With the renovation of Kigali and the selection of Rockwell Collins’ ARINC airport systems, RwandAir clearly understands the need for providing scalable and customizable solutions that are on international standards.”
