Airbus delivers first A330-800 to Uganda Airlines

Ugandan flag carrier Uganda Airlines (UR) has taken delivery of its first of two A330-800 aircraft on Tuesday from manufacturer Airbus. This is the first wide-body for the young airline, which commenced operations in August 2019.

The aircraft was rolled out in October of this year, and UR reveled the A330neo’s cabin product the following month. The jet is outfitted with a three class passenger cabin, including a businessclass featuring lie-flat seats, and a premium economy cabin in addition to the standard economy seats.

These A330s will be joining the airline’s existing fleet of four 76 seat Mitsubishi (formerly Bombardier) CRJ-900ERs. UR plans to utilize the widebodies on long haul service to Europe, Asia, and the MiddleEast.
