Uganda Airlines grows: New planes set to be brought

By Our Reporter

Dr. David Kakuba, the Director General of the Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (UCAA) recently confirmed that Uganda would receive two Airbuses next year. Speaking at the 75 year celebration of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) organized in Jinja, he said that this move was so that the country would compete with other airlines on an international level.

"Uganda will get two Airbuses A330,” he said. “These will be flying to countries like England, India and China among others. It will enable us to compete internationally like in two to three years to come.” He quickly noted that for this dream to be realized, Ugandans would have to exercise patriotism as opposed to the negative slurs many had resorted to.

“Let’s embrace it, it’s now giving formidable competition to other Airlines,” he started. “People should be proud of it, because now, while bombardiers fly to nearby countries, the Airbuses will be flying to international countries and it will enable us boost tourism.”

Note that it’s almost two months now since the first plane took to the skies amid jubilations and touched base in Nairobi. Except for people demanding the rolex (chapatti and eggs), the airline has received raving reviews so far, and this move is just as welcome.
