The works which have been ongoing over the past two years involve expanding parts of the departure terminal, widening the road to the terminal, building a canopy to protect passengers from rain, among others.

This work has caused a lot of disruption and stress to passengers, especially those leaving the country.

This nightmare however, is soon coming to an end according to Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (UCAA) Director General Fred Bwamesigire.

Bamwesigire said while appearing on UBC on Tuesday June 6, that the UPDF Engineers Brigade which was constructed for the work, has promised to complete it in the next two months.

We thought we would have completed it by now, but a few things such as importation of finishing tiles caused the delays,” he said.

We shall have to wait another two months; we should be able to complete everything by the end of August.

Once the project is completed, the UCAA boss says, Entebbe will be at the level of “how an international airport should be,” with bigger space in the arrivals, departure and immigration areas, a twin road system to the Departures, the waiting lounges among others.

Meanwhile, Bwamwesigire said air travel in Uganda has seen up to 80% recovery post Covid19 with, with daily arrivals now approaching 5000, which was the average in 2019.
