Air Uganda Growing Bigger and Better as the "Wings of East Africa," in African Business Review

Airline Looks to a Bright Future With More Routes, Flights and Flexibility for Passengers

NORWICH, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwire - Apr 30, 2012) - With its first flight launching in November 2007, Air Uganda will be celebrating its five year anniversary later this year. In that time, the country's carrier has continued to grow its operations in East Africa and Southern Sudan.

Air Uganda is also a member of Celestair Group, with sister airlines in West Africa, Air Burkina, Air Mali, and in Europe, Meridianafly.

The airline, headquartered in Kampala, offers flights to seven destinations - Nairobi, Mombasa, Juba, Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar (seasonal), Kigali and more recently Bujumbura, served by 55 flights per week.

"Air Uganda over the years has continually increased its footprint in the East African region offering direct flights out of Entebbe. What we offer today to the East African traveller is convenience, comfort, making the most of opportunities. The campaign was thus meant to focus on the larger purpose why people fly - to spread ideas, to strike partnerships, to explore opportunities, to connect with their loved ones," the company states.
