The national carrier of Uganda, Air Uganda launched its direct flights Entebbe International Airport to Moi International Airport Kenya using MD-87 three times per week on, Tuesdays, Thursdays and Sundays. The move heralds a new era of air connectivity between landlocked Uganda and Mombasa, which is an important business corridor for many Uganda and Great Lakes region entrepreneurs. These has also opened opportunities for tourists who are visiting both Kenya and Uganda who can now fly direct from Mombasa to Entebbe and do gorilla safaris in Uganda and this will also benefit tourists who are visiting the entire Coast Malindi,Ukunda,Lamu,Mombasa and even Tsavo East/Tsavo West as they is no hassle of flying on scheduled flight from Mombasa to Nairobi and at times it is very hectic as at times you end up missing connecting your flights due to delays due to weather and technical operations issues that are unavoidable. Budget travelers have a reason to laugh as they will no longer have to take long hours on the road travelling to and from Uganda.
