In a statement yesterday, Air Uganda says that it is experiencing temporary disruptions to its scheduled flights. The airline was quick to assure passengers that their travel plans would not be affected.

“All passengers scheduled to fly on Air Uganda between 17th and 20th June 2014 will be re-protected on partner Airlines and or accommodated where necessary accordingly,” says the airline.

The cause of the disruptions has not been disclosed.

Air Uganda was founded in 2007 and operates regional flights from its hub at Entebbe International Airport. Destinations served include Bujumbura, Dar es Salaam, Juba, Kilimanjaro, Mombasa, Nairobi and Mogadishu.

The airline began operations with an MD-87 and has since added three 50-seater Bombardier CRJ-200 to the fleet.

Though privately owned, Air Uganda has practically become the national airline of Uganda.
