AIR Uganda will celebrate its first anniversary today.
â€œSurviving in the aviation industry has been difficult, especially during these hard times of the financial crisis and fuel prices shooting up. We are happy to have reached this far,â€ Peter de Waal, the chief executive, told a press conference in Kololo, Kampala.
De Waal said changes they had made during the past year included suspending the morning flight to Nairobi, partnering with other airlines and upgrading of the business class.
â€œWe suspended our morning flight to Nairobi because it was not cost-effective, but we increased our frequency to Juba since it was more popular,â€ he said.
â€œWe are still investing in improving our in-flight and operational services, so we expect a breakthrough some time mid next year,â€ de Waal added.
