About Air Uganda

We are The wings of East Africa

The Airline of Uganda

More than just an airline, Air Uganda acts as an ambassador for Uganda. We bring you the spirit of the Pearl of Africa and its people on each of your fights with the special attention that our Ugandan crew provides. We fly the Crested Crane, a symbol of the country and this historic nation.

Air Uganda has received several accolades from its growing number of customers who have recognized the quality of its service on the ground and in the air. We are proud to have the best punctuality record in East Africa and to be known as a young, vibrant and efficient airline.
