About Aerolink Uganda

Aerolink Uganda Limited is a domestic airline offering both charter and schedule flights into Uganda's national parks.

The airline offers daily flights into Queen Elizabeth National Park (Kasese and Mweya airstrips), Murchison Falls (Bugungu, Pakuba and Chobe airstrips), Bwindi Impenetrable Forest (Kihihi and Kisoro airstrips), Kidepo Valley National Park (Apoka airstrip) and Semuliki National Park (Semliki airstrip), all from it’s base at Entebbe International Airport.

Aerolink Uganda is affiliated to Regional Air Services in Tanzania and Airkenya Express in Kenya.

The flights are fitted with clear glass cockpits, allowing the passengers to provide a 'fly with the pilots' edge, adding elements of adventure and comfort. From Entrebbe, flights are approximately one hour and fifteen minutes to each destination, thus ensuring passengers arrive at their destination feeling refreshed and energised to take on the wilderness. Visitors can experience the adventurous white water rafting as well as come close to the gorillas. Highly trained engineers inspect the aircraft frequently, ensuring the highest levels of safety, security and comfort for passengers.

Aerolink Uganda is set to benefit as domestic aviation in Uganda is taking off. Domestic passengers are projected to grow to 60,000 in 2018 and to 152,000 by 2023. Domestic aircraft movements are projected to be 6,300 in 2018 and 11,600 in 2023. The single biggest contributor to the growth of the domestic air travel industry is the growth in the number of African elites as they appreciate use of air transport as they have the cash. Indeed, Uganda is among the countries that are expected to experience a rapid air transport growth.
