East African carrier, Uganda Airlines (UR/UGD) has announced, as part of its network for its Airbus A330neo fleet, that it is launching its London Heathrow route.
In a statement on Twitter, the airline said it planned to introduce “long haul flights to Dubai, London, Guangzhou and Mumbai, upon conclusion of the ongoing A330neo operations certification”.
Uganda Airlines began operations in 2019 and is owned by the Government of Uganda. Previously, the airline has only operated within Africa.
The Airbus A330-800 is the shorter variant of the Airbus A330neo and has been less popular than the A330-900.
