On August 28 2019, Uganda Airlines has reduced it’s prices for the maiden flight with a one-way ticket put at Shs166,000 from Entebbe to Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) while the return ticket goes for as low as Shs330,000, which is a great discount from the normal average $300 other airlines are charging for the same route.
The airline’s website currently shows there is no tax applied on the ticket. When the tax is applied, the ticket could be increased by $147 to bring the entire cost to $192 for a one-way economy ticket. It is not yet clear when the tax will be applied. Online booking was activated on Wednesday.
A round-trip would cost one in the highs of $277 with taxes inclusive, the Uganda Airlines website shows.
The prices keep on changing reflecting the demand at the time. The people paying for the business class are charged $200 minus tax.
Uganda Airlines will take to the skies next Wednesday for the first commercial flight, which will leave Entebbe at 6:00am and land at JKIA at 7:15 am. One-way ticket from JKIA to Entebbe will cost $70 but a tax of $90 will be applied to bring the total cost to $160.
Uganda officially received two planes – CRJ 900 – from Canada’s Bombardier in April 23, 2019. It has been working on the paperwork and receiving necessary approvals from Uganda Civil Aviation Authority and destination countries to be able to fly commercially.
