The Rwandan government has appointed Ms. Yvonne Manzi Makolo as the new Chief Executive Officer of the country’s national carrier, RwandAir.


She takes over at the helm of the airline alongside a growing number of professional women from the ‘Land of a Thousand Hills‘ who hold similar leadership positions, the latest such appointment being that of Michaella Rugwizangoga as CEO of Volkswagen Rwanda.

Her substantive appointment brings to an end the interim situation over the past year when Col. Chance Ndagano was brought in as Acting CEO following the departure of John Mirenge.

Ms. Yvonne’s appointment comes at a time when RwandAir is looking to expand their African and intercontinental destination network with Abuja and Cape Town services due to be launched in April and May. Also under planning are new long haul flights to Guangzhou in China and New York in the United States.
