KAMPALA – The Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (UCAA) has issued a tentative schedule of passenger flights that will fly into Uganda as Entebbe airport braces for reopening on October 1 after nearly seven months of closure over Covid-19.
The list issued by Eng Sooma Ayub, the Director of Airports and Aviation Security, on Tuesday, 08 September 2020, is for the next three months. It includes flights from major airliners such as Qatar Airways, Turkish Airlines, Ethiopia Airways, Kenya Airways, Rwanda Air and Uganda Airlines.
The flights will be from places such as Doha, Amsterdam, Addis Ababa, Juba, Kigali and Nairobi.
The Covid-19 National Taskforce headed by Prime Minister Ruhakana Rugunda last week proposed the reopening of Entebbe airport, borders, places of worship and universities for final year medical students.
The taskforce recommended that Entebbe airport and borders should reopen on October 1. The proposals were sent to President Museveni for final consideration and approval.
