Customer Service Plan

This Customer Service Plan does not create contractual or legal rights, nor legally bind Air Uganda for actions taken in conformance with this plan. Air Uganda contractual rights and obligations are listed in the company’s conditions of carriage and applicable tariffs. These resources provide customers with additional information on the matters discussed herein, and should be carefully reviewed to ensure that customers fully understand their rights and our obligations. 

1.         Air Uganda will disclose on our website and on our phone reservation line, that the lowest fare   available may be located elsewhere.

2.         Air Uganda shall endeavor to deliver baggage on time, make every reasonable attempt to return mishandled baggage within 36 hours, compensate passengers for reasonable expenses associated with delayed delivery as required by applicable international agreements, and reimburse customers for lost baggage.
