Entebbe to Johannesburg: More flights
As of last week, Uganda Airlines now offers more flights than ever, connecting Johannesburg with the Ugandan city of Entebbe. With the re-addition of its Wednesday flight, the airline officially services the route five times a week, according to Travel News.
The addition comes as a result of the easing of COVID-19 protocols over the last ten months in both South Africa and Uganda, as travel requirements for passengers travelling through Entebbe Airport have essentially gone back to those of pre-pandemic days.
