Air Uganda has now started upping flights from Entebbe to a number of destinations across their existing network. Kigali will be served twice a day three times a week with the intention to eventually going double daily throughout the week it is understood. Bujumbura, in conjunction with Kigali, has moved from three flights to four times a week and nonstop services between Entebbe and Mombasa have been upped from three to five times a week, with immediate effect. The airline has also reiterated a number of very attractive fares available for those travelling on U7 with fixed dates of travel, such as to Nairobi at US Dollars 151 inclusive of taxes, US Dollars 172 return to Kigali, again inclusive of taxes, or to Mombasa at US Dollars 284 return, again inclusive of taxes. For U7s destinations, hotel packages are also available through the airline, making in particular that coastal holiday an affordable reality for such posh properties as the Mombasa Serena Beach Club and Spa at Shanzu Beach north of Mombasa or the equally fancied Leopard Beach Club and Spa at Diani Beach south of Mombasa.
According to a source close to Air Uganda, the airline is now building on growing demand for their flights and a broader acceptance in the market, where they now successfully compete with their rivals or as in the case of Dar es Salaam offer the only daily nonstop jet service out of Entebbe.
