Qatar Airways Cargo, RwandAir launch Kigali Africa Hub
Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer, Cargo, Qatar Airways, and Yvonne Makolo, CEO, RwandAir officially launched operations at the Kigali Africa Hub. In the run-up to the launch, QAS Cargo, a subsidiary of Qatar Airways, provided consultancy support to RwandAir Cargo to help improve its cargo handling skills. A team from QAS Cargo visited the cargo handling facility area and presented RwandAir with a detailed action plan.
The team is now working together on a future roadmap, including a proposed improvement plan for RwandAir’s warehouse infrastructure. Guillaume Halleux, Chief Officer, Cargo, Qatar Airways, said, “Africa is the fastest growing economy, yet for it to develop to its full potential requires investment in logistics infrastructure.
Qatar and Rwanda have long-enjoyed bilateral trade relations, with both Qatar Airways and Qatar Investment Authority having invested in Kigali International Airport and RwandAir. It was, therefore, a logical step that Qatar Airways Cargo support RwandAir in its cargo ambitions.”
