Uganda will receive the first Bombardier aircraft at the end of January 2019, according to a timeline released by Works and Transport Minister Eng. Monica Azuba Ntege.

Addressing press at Uganda Media Centre Tuesday, Azuba said government will make it compulsory for its officials to use the national airlines.

“The process is in the pipeline to ensure all government officials use the Ugandan national airline for travels outside the country,” Azuba told press.

She added: “Government should enforce travel on the national airline because we lose a lot of money [about $140m] to other airlines in travels abroad.”

The country has already made advance payments for six aircrafts including two airbuses and four bombardiers.

Of the four CRJ 900 Bombardier aircrafts purchased, the first one will arrive January 2019 while the two A330 Neo Airbuses will be ready by 2020.

To fly to India

While addressing press at State House Entebbe, President Museveni said he had asked the Prime Minister of India, Shri Narendra Modi, to allow Uganda airlines fly directly to Bombay.

Mumbai is the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra that was incorporated into Bombay state after 1947 independence.

During the discussions, Prime Minister Modi and President Museveni underlined the traditionally warm and close ties between Uganda and India. Both sides agreed that bilateral relations have tremendous potential and reaffirmed the mutual desire to strengthen political, economic, commercial, defence, technical, educational, scientific and cultural cooperation.

President Museveni praised the contribution of the 30,000-strong Indian Diaspora towards Uganda’s national development and economic growth. India appreciated the significant role played by Uganda for economic integration and maintenance of peace and stability in the Region.
