Uganda’s national airline is all set to commence three weekly flights to Mumbai from October 7.
Jennifer Bamuturaki, the CEO of Uganda Airlines, expressed her anticipation for the launch of the Entebbe-Mumbai route and her confidence in its future growth.
She said, “This route is important to the airline because of the anticipated traffic that we will accrue for the network. The route means so much to our Indian brothers and sisters because it will reduce journey times from nine hours to exactly five and a half hours.”
Uganda’s Minister of Works and Transport, Edward Katumba Wamala, also highlighted the route’s potential to create more opportunities for both Ugandan and Indians.
Furthermore, the airline has plans to launch direct flights from Entebbe to Lagos, from October 19.
