The Kenyan national carrier has cut its daily flights to Entebbe from 12 to 9 weekly due to a surge in Covid-19 cases in Uganda.
“There is a third wave in Uganda and we have had to restrict our flights by cutting on frequencies,” said Allan Kilavuka, chief executive Kenya Airways.
According to the latest statistics, Uganda has recorded a Total of
40,734 cases since last year in March when the pandemic reached in the East African country.
Uganda has recorded 334 deaths and 15,147 recoveries.
With the third wave of the Covid-19 pandemic ravaging through the landlocked East African country, the government has imposed a total lockdown and banned movement from one district to another.
Uganda is one of the key routes for Kenya Airways with the most frequencies within the region and low demand is set to impact on the carrier’s earnings.
