Uganda to Launch New National Airline


The government of Uganda has approved plans to establish a new national airline and is now in the process of deciding what form it will take.


Speaking to Flightglobal at the Routes Africa conference in Tenerife on 28 June, Ignie Igunduura – head of public affairs at Uganda's civil aviation authority – said that studies submitted by the regulator and experts "both indicated we needed a new national airline, especially if we are going to hub at our national airport at Entebbe".


The are "several options" for how a new carrier might be constituted, he adds. Those being considered include a joint venture, a fully state-owned entity, and a carrier that is established by the government and then listed via an IPO.


Igunduura says the government wants the carrier to have an initial fleet of seven aircraft and to operate a network with "regional and internal flights being prioritised", followed by international routes.


He indicates that the government is looking at ordering "medium-sized jets" and is examining Embraer and Bombardier CRJ regional jets.


Uganda has been without a publicly owned carrier since 2001 when Uganda Airlines ceased operations. Privately owned Air Uganda operated between 2007 and 2014.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.

I am really tempted to book the next ethiopian airlines ticket and relive your journey. The pictures shared with the post also reflect that you truly enjoyed the travel. Great post! I also like the fact that you have covered nuances about the food and entertainment service through the pictures. It helps people know what to expect on their travel by this airline.
