As from May 8 this year, Air Uganda will increase the number of flights between Entebbe and Juba, South Sudan’s capital, from the present 12 to 15 per week.
The Entebbe-based carrier, popularly referred to as the Pearl of Africa, will add a second daily flight over the weekends, while Friday, due to the rise in demand, will have a third flight added to provide extra seats.
Effective from that date, the airline will phase out the dual class MD87 from the route and introduce single class CRJ200. Besides that, Air Uganda will also change its flights to Dar es Salaam which will be served daily with a nonstop service.
On the other hand, from May 29 this year, the airline intends to unveil flights to Kilimanjaro International Airport, connecting Arusha, the headquarters of the East African Community and ‘Safari Capital of East Africa’ with Entebbe, before proceeding to the Kenyan tourism hub city of Mombasa.
