Uganda Airlines adds new routes

Uganda Airlines has announced it plans to add three additional routes to its schedule in October, bringing the number of its destinations to seven, the company said.

The airline made its inaugural flight to Bujumbura, Burundi on September 30 and will fly to Kilimanjaro, Tanzania and to Mombasa in Kenya. The airline said these flights are in addition to its routes to Nairobi, Mogadishu, Dar es Salaam and Juba.

The planned increase will see three daily flights to Nairobi from two, and two to Juba from one, but this depends on the acquisition of more aeroplanes.

Uganda Airlines is the flag carrier of Uganda. The airline was established in May 1976, and started operations in 1977. It is headquartered in Entebbe, Wakiso District, Uganda, and operates from its hub in Entebbe International Airport.
