Emirates Airlines, the leading airline in the United Arab Emirates, has confirmed that it would start passenger flights starting Oct. 1 to Entebbe International Airport. After the COVID epidemic, the airport was formally opened.
Emirates Airlines posted this afternoon that at 1705hrs (5:05 pm), they expected to touchdown at Entebbe Airport. As a part of the worldwide COVID 19 pandemic, the airline halted its commercial airlines to Uganda approximately six months earlier owing to the airport’s suspension.
The Airline says in a statement,” Emirates would fly to Entebbe on Oct. 1 and Muscat on Oct. 2, extending its flight destinations coverage to 94 cities.”
Emirates is the world’s fourth-largest carrier with passenger-kilometers for passengers flights and the second-largest carrier in the volume of tonne-kilometers of freight.
Emirates introduced three flights per week to Entebbe in May 2019 as demand grew, culminating in a rise in passenger numbers through Entebbe to destinations worldwide for Emirates.

Emirates also confirmed that it would restart services to five African locations, expanding the existing operating network to 92 destinations. Flight to Johannesburg & cape town of South Africa would restart on Oct. 1 and Durban flights on Oct. 4. The carriers would also launch services on Oct. 1 to Harare, Zimbabwe, and Oct. 3 to Mauritius.
The latest news arrives as the Dubai-based airlines are steadily returning to regular activities owing to the COVID-19 epidemic after a months-long closure.
