Brussels Airlines announces a return to daily flights to Entebbe

Brussels Airlines is returning their East Africa flights to pre-pandemic levels, effective 14th of June, after gradually upping their service levels until that date.

Presently is Brussels Airlines flying twice a week to and from Entebbe, every Monday and Thursday and from 22nd of May will a third frequency be added, operating on Saturdays.

Once the daily service commences again will flight departure and arrival times also be restored to pre-pandemic timings.

Five of the weekly flights will then operate in conjunction with Kigali / Rwanda while the remaining two services will combine with Bujumbura / Burundi.

Uganda’s tourism and hospitality industry has warmly welcomed the announcement, which will aid the sector’s recovery from a year of constant lows, resulting in a massive loss of revenues and causing layoffs in hotels, restaurants and the tourism industry in general.

Meanwhile has the airline also once again extended their offer to passengers to rebook their flights without any charges.

Passengers who want to postpone their original trip but cannot yet decide on a new date and destination have the option of canceling their booking first, without committing to a new travel date. The new booking must then only be made by August 31, 2021. In this case, the departure date only has to be next year, by July 31, 2022.  Read more on ATC News
