β€œNi Hao #Guangzhou! A toast to yet another great milestone! Uganda Airlines has been granted landing rights to China πŸ‡¨πŸ‡³! Cheers to a new world of greater connectivity! #Uganda Airlines,” a brief statement announcing the new rout.

Previously, Uganda Airlines announced that it has got landing approvals for Heathrow Airport and Dubai International Airports as it resumes long-haul flights.

The initial routes with the A330 are London, Dubai, Guangzhou, and Mumbai, with the airline operating direct flights to these cities from Entebbe International Airport, the statement said.

The airline in January and February received two new A330-800neo aircraft, which it hopes to use for long-haul flights to Europe, Asia and the Middle-East.

Government is optimistic that the revival of the national flag carrier will boost the country’s economic growth and tourism. Ugandans spend over 400 million U.S. dollars on air travel annually, according to government figures.
