More flights to key destinations across Eastern Africa

Air Uganda announced an increase in flights to a number of their East African destinations effective April 14. New is that Mombasa will now be served five times a week directly up from previously four flights a week, cutting out the en-route stop at Kilimanjaro. Kilimanjaro will for now be served three times a week, likely to go to four soon in a joint code share operation with Tanzania’s Precision Air while under a similar deal Dar es Salaam will be served twice a day compared to the previous one flight a day, allowing day trips from Uganda to Dar without the need of an overnight stay.

Precision Air will no longer operate flights from the two airports to Entebbe under their own banner but use the Air Uganda flights under a commercial/code share agreement.

The most recently launched destination of Mogadishu/Somalia will also see the number of weekly flights go up from three to four a week, a sign of continued strong demand on the route.

Juba will see double daily flights continue except on Wednesdays and Fridays, when three daily flights connect Entebbe with South Sudan’s capital city.

Nairobi flights will remain, for the time being, on the same level with three flights a day except for Saturday when only two flights are operated.

Bujumbura flights will also be upped from the present four to five a week and have been changed to nonstop flights both ways.
