Feeder Airlines, a Southern Sudan-based passenger service company, is to start daily flights between Juba and Entebbe Airport.

The firm, with two 50-seater aircraft, made its inaugural flight on Tuesday, saying the initiative would enhance trade in the region.

“We are privileged to be part of the region’s aviation industry. Being new and the first airline in Southern Sudan, we shall borrow a leaf from locally-established firms,” Captain David Martin, the airlines managing director, said in an interview.

He added that they would land at Entebbe three times a week for the first two weeks and start daily flights thereafter.

The firms also plans to venture into the European and Middle East markets.

Turkish Airlines also announced recently that by June this year, it will be flying from Entebbe to Istanbul four times a week.
“Uganda is among the African countries that inspire a lot of investor confidence, we shall be privileged to operate in an economy growing at a rate of 6%,” the appointed director for the Uganda office Orhan Subay, said in an interview recently.
