As one of the mechanisms in the process of securing an Air Operator Certificate (AOC) for the new and rather special widebody aircraft, yesterday Uganda Airlines sent one of its two rare Airbuses A330-800neos on a demo flight from Entebbe to Johannesburg, South Africa.

The seven-months-old aircraft, registered as 5X-NIL, took off from Entebbe International Airport (EBB) with a limited number of passengers at 11:56 local time on Thursday.

According to the Airline, they are later planning to operate their new jets to Europe, the Middle East, and Asia- in particular London, Dubai, and Guangzhou. In fact, earlier this year, it secured early morning landing slots at London Heathrow. However, at the time, it had expected to gain certification for its new bird from the Ugandan authorities by the end of April.

Once the airline gains certification for the jets, it will be a complete game-changer in terms of route planning. The airline, which officially commenced operations in August 2019, has a fleet consisting only of four CRJ-900 regional jets that have 20 lie-flat seats in business class, 28 seats in premium economy, and 210 in the main economy cabin.
