Shannon, Ireland. August 2013// Yet another flag carrier has selected Alkym Management and Control System for Aircraft Maintenance to manage their modern growing fleet. RwandAir recently selected Volartec as their preferred provider after a rigorous selection process.  

With their fleet being modernized and expanded over the past 12 months Rwandair took the opportunity to examine how they could best manage those assets. The process of inviting 10 software providers to tender for the provision of services was undertaken post an initial market review.

The Rwandair project committee consisted of a very experienced team with a variety of skills and background to look at the options available. Early in the process they identified the level of sophistication needed in a complete solution which was not to be compromised. This was a process they did not feel should be revisited.

Rwandair have decided to take 13 of the available Alkym Modules from the outset. The project will get under way towards the end of August with a 5 week on site phase. The preliminary work is already underway.   

John Barry, SVP Business Development with Volartec who visited with the RwandAir selection committee in Kigali to finalize the agreement stated that “working with RwandAir is yet another opportunity to show the market that forward thinking progressive carriers that take the time to examine the options can get market leading software at a realistic price.  The recent release of Alkym version 5.3 with its many new developments is just another step to ensure we tick every box in the requirement list.”  


RwandAir is the national carrier of Rwanda, that operates services to East Africa, Central Africa, West Africa, Southern Africa and the Middel East from its main base at Kigali International Airport in Kigali. The airline has a fleet of Boeing 737-800NGs, a 737-700NG CRJ-900s and a Dash8-200. Visit them at
