I direct that you give Jennifer Bamuturaki a substantive appointment for 3 years.”

“The market disruptions imposed by COVID-19 restrictions threw us off-track on many parameters in our projections, but we are getting back. A positive indicator, for now, is that our revenues are growing faster than our costs, so it’s good to see that we are flying nose up,” a source in the Airline told our spy recently.

Uganda Airlines has since gone for the long-haul network to stimulate connecting traffic between the existing regional network and destinations such as London and Guangzhou. Bujumbura in Burundi, Kinshasa, and Juba is already showing good potential for connecting traffic. an accessible web community
