RwandAir, the flag carrier of the Republic of Rwanda, has signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Airbus for two A330 aircraft.

The deal is worth around $500m based on current list prices. Airbus said the A330s will be delivered to the airline in the second half of 2016 and will be powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 700 engines.

RwandAir confirmed the aircraft will be placed on medium- and long-haul routes to Europe, the Middle East and Asia.

The A330 MoU follows RwandAir signing a contract with Middle Eastern lessor Palma Holding last week to add a Bombardier Q400 to its fleet.
