Air Uganda didn’t meet requirements

Ugandans should not whine over the suspension of Air Uganda. The Civil Aviation Authority withdrew Air Uganda’s operations certificate because the airline could not meet the internationally recognised aviation standards.
However, not all hope is lost. I learnt recently, that CAA intends to grant rights to other airlines like RwandAir and Ethiopian Airlines which are planning to establish flights on the routes that were previously covered by Air Uganda. This will break the monopoly currently being enjoyed by Kenya Airlines which had doubled its air tickets to the chagrin of frequent flyers. Government should revive Uganda airlines instead.
