Setting to begin the business in July, Uganda Airlines secured routes with seven African countries.
The inaugural routes include Nairobi, Juba, Bujumbura, Khartoum, Mogadishu, Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro and later Johannesburg.
Jennifer Bamuturaki, the Uganda Airlines Commercial Director told journalists that they had carried out research before coming up with those flight destinations around the continent.
“You cannot come up with a schedule without doing route research. During the research, we interfaced with various stakeholders including travel agents, corporates and many others before confirming the routes are viable,” Ms. Bamuturaki said.
Ms. Bamuturaki explained that the national carrier will not look at the competition in the first days but the numbers to sustain the routes and this she said will reciprocate into the business when the airbuses start their international operations.
The commercial director added that the national carrier will be a serious player in the airlines business. “We are not coming into the market as underdogs but as serious players,” she said.
Uganda Airlines Monday April 23, delivered the first two of its plane fleet (CRJ900 Bombardiers).
