Speaker Rebecca Kadaga on the 16th of October directed the Parliamentary commission to have all MPs and staff of parliament fly with Uganda Airlines to destinations where the airline operates.
The letter instructing MPs to fly Uganda airlines says the move is aimed at supporting the national carrier.
“I, therefore, write to you to ensure that all official trips of the Members of Parliament and the staff of Parliament while on official duty to a destination where the airline operates are scheduled with Uganda Airlines,” Kadaga wrote.
The national carrier was finally revived early this year after being down for 20 years since its collapse.
Uganda Airlines last month received two new Bombardier CRJ900s to grow their fleet to a total of four aircraft at a function held at Entebbe airport.
It has since embarked on direct flights from Entebbe to Nairobi, Mombasa, Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, Juba, Bujumbura and Mogadishu.
