Recently, government approved Uganda Airlines and revealed that it will start operations in October this year.

Now, the Uganda Airlines Management has continued to prove that this time round they are more than serious after taking another step to make sure that the airline dream is put into reality by the stipulated time.

The management has already started negotiations to reclaim the old routes.

According to the East African, sources close to the revival plan have indicated that the technical teams are also considering a range of exclusive rights along the booking, ticketing and passenger handling chain for the national carrier.

After 15 years on the ground and with the cargo handling component privatised, the national carrier will be starting from near zero.

“The government through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is in the process of renegotiating with air regulatory authorities in different countries to reclaim the routes which were operated by Uganda Airlines before it was liquidated” said Patricia Okiria, a member of the task force.
