This aircraft was delivered to LOT Polish Airlines, in 1992 with the registration SP-LKA. In 2010, in order to spread wings across the continent and to Dubai, RwandAir leased two B737-500s, for a period of 3 years, in the first time. 9XR-WD is leased from GECAS joined the fleet in June 2010.

 

In January 2013, facing to a dramatic growth, the airline said that it suffers with B737-500s.  B737-500s have became too small to meet the demand. The airline has decided to replace them with B737-700 Next Generation.
