From March 2014, British Airways will increase the number of flights from London to Entebbe from three to four times a week.
The reason for this development is the increased demand for flights to Uganda and the need for faster links between Uganda and the rest of the world. “Passengers have been wasting a lot of time flying from London to other European cities or the Middle East in order to come to Uganda because of limited direct flights. This came to our concern and we have struggled hard to come to their help,” says Ms Faith Chaitezvi, Country Manager of British Airways Uganda. The increased number of flights come along with provision of better flight services, new aircrafts, new first class products and world class lounges.
According to the new timetable, flights will depart at 12.20 hr from London Heathrow every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday, arriving at 22.50 hr at Entebbe International Airport. The return flights on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday will depart Entebbe at 01.00 hr and arrive at 07.50 hr in London, allowing travellers plenty of time to make connections to other flights.
