BRITISH AIRWAYS CUTS FARES FOR AUGUST DUE TO LOW LOADS
A reported downturn in sales out of Entebbe to Europe and the United States has prompted British Airways to counter the trend with some aggressive market fares, which for business class from Uganda to key points in Europe have been pegged at 1.999 US Dollars, plus taxes and fees.
Fares to the Big Apple, in comparison, are on sale for the entire month of August (travelling period) at US Dollars 2.550, again plus taxes and fees.
British Airways Country Manager Uganda, Faith Chaitezvi, yesterday announced the special fares, set to start with immediate effect and said they will be available for sale until August 31 for outbound travel. Passengers are required to return anytime within 12 months. She went on to say in a media statement availed to this correspondent overnight: At British Airways, we are constantly striving to deliver value for our customers, following a thorough review we have tailored the best possible fares to give our customers, all year round. British Airways currently flies 5 times a week with a B767 between London Heathrow and Entebbe / Uganda.
