Uganda Airlines has apologised for a Monday incident in which its plane ran out of fuel causing delays at Julius Nyerere International Airport, Dar es Salaam in Tanzania.
““Allow us to apologise for the prolonged delay at Julius Nyerere International Airport, Dar es Salaam that occurred yesterday (July 12) on our flight UR 321,” reads a statement posted on Twitter.
The airlines said Tuesday the delay was affected by a mix up in delayed fuel delivery to the Aircraft at the airport.
“Our service was affected by a mix up in delayed fuel delivery to the Aircraft caused by our supplier in Dar es Salaam.”
Uganda Airlines says the matter has been taken up with supplier “to ensure a repeat of the same does not occur in future.”
Last week, the airlines revised flight schedules owing to coronavirus.
