Maastricht, Netherlands | THE INDEPENDENT | Uganda’s two new Bombardiers, flights UR474 and UR470, have landed in Netherlands and Belgium, after leaving their manufacture base in Canada earlier on Saturday.
The two CRJ-900s planes will spend the night there, before starting a day and night flight Sunday for Entebbe, where they are expected to land on Monday morning.
The two will bring to four the total number of Bombardiers that Uganda Airlines will have for its regional services.
Uganda also expects two new Airbus planes in the next two years for long distance travel. Uganda Airlines earlier this year firmed up its order for the two A330-800 airliners, the latest version of the most popular A330 wide-body plane.
The Ferry Crew for the 3rd and 4th Aircraft being delivered to Uganda Airlines are Captains Emmanuel Mutebi, Charles Karabarinde, Stephen Ariong and the Corporate QM Michael Kaliisa. The planes are registered as 5x-KDP – Kidepo National Park and 5x-KNP – Kabalega National Park. It
