Uganda Airlines has acquired two additional Bombardier aircrafts as it prepares to fly to more destinations in Africa.
The airline received the two Bombardier CRJ900 airplanes at the Entebbe International Airport, completing the first phase of the revival of the Ugandan flag carrier.
“With the arrival of the new aircraft, the carrier will cover several other destinations including Kinshasa, Asmara, Hergeisa, Lusaka, Harare, Johannesburg, Djibouti and Addis Ababa,” said Cornwell Muleya, the airline’s technical advisor.
Last week, the airline unveiled three additional regional routes to Bujumbura, Kilimanjaro, and Mombasa, bringing the total number of its destinations to seven.
The air carrier made its maiden trip to Bujumbura, the capital city of Burundi, on Monday 1st October. It expects to add the Kilimanjaro and Mombasa routes before the end of this month
Uganda Airlines previously flew to eight destinations and had a fleet of 15 aircraft before its liquidation in 2001. It was later revived in August 2019.
