British Airways suspends flights to Uganda


British Airways has “with regret” suspended services between London Heathrow and Entebbe (Uganda) Airports starting October 2, 2015.

British Airways final flight to and from Entebbe airport will be on October 2 and October 3, 2015 respectively.

The suspension of flights between Entebbe & Heathrow is because the route “was not commercially viable”.

British Airways has been flying four times a week on the route.

British Airways has operated in Uganda for 24 years after re-launching its flights to Uganda in 1991.

It was the only airline operating direct flights to London, Heathrow.


“British Airways has been serving Entebbe in different forms for a number of years and we are continually reviewing and evaluating our flights. Sometimes the outcome of these reviews leaves us with decisions, like this one, that are extremely hard to make,” reads a communication from the British Airways International Media Team.

This is the second airline company in less than two years to suspend operations at Entebbe International Airport.

Air Uganda suspended all operation in June 2014 after the Civil Aviation Authority withdrew its license.
