The airline, part of Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development (AFED) project, currently operates scheduled flights to all the East African capitals and Juba in South Sudan.
The Arusha flights, according to a statement released over the weekend, would begin May next year, to ease travel between the tourist city, the head of East African Community and Uganda. “Plans are underway to grow the network by introduction of flights to Arusha in May next year starting with a three weekly flights frequency,” the airline said in the release.
Air Uganda early this year introduced Crane class that designed to give its client a stress free travel experience from the time the client purchase his ticket to arrival at his destination.
“With this offering the client enjoys a separate check in counter to reduce the time spent in queues, access to the Airport lounge where one gets to relax and have a meal while awaits his/her flight,” the release said.
On board a crane class passenger gets an extra seat for his own personal space and also an extra baggage allowance. “This class is designed to offer comfort and ease when travelling and therefore offering a dignified experience for our clients,” the airline said.
Crane class is only offered on our CRJ – 200 aircraft which serves all Air Uganda routes save for Juba. Air Uganda operates two types of Aircraft the CRJ 200 and the MD 87, offering three class cabin configurations, business class, Crane class and Economy class.
