British Airways Suspends Heathrow Flights

British Airways has suspended flights between Entebbe International Airport and Heathrow, London.

A statement from the British Airways International Media Team indicates that the flights are not “commercially viable” and that the suspension takes effect in October this year.

British Airways has been flying four times a week on the route.

British Airways has operated in Uganda for 24 years after re-launching its flights to Uganda in 1991.

This is the second airline company in less than two years to suspend operations at Entebbe International Airport.

Air Uganda suspended all operation in June 2014 after the Civil Aviation Authority withdrew its license.

However, two new players from the Middle East made their entry into Uganda in the last one year.
