According to the spokesperson for this airline company, they hope to starts flights from Entebbe airport to Heathrow in May.
This is after their new Airbus A330NEO is certified by its regulators and lifting of the ban on the UK’s non-essential travel. Listed below is the original statement.
“The aircraft is not yet certified by the regulator but we are hoping to have completed that process by the end of April.
If the UK relaxes travel restraints, we should be ready to launch Entebbe – London route sometime in May.”
Besides that, Uganda airlines eye more destinations around the globe including Dubai, Mumbai, Guangzhou in China, and other notable hubs.
