Two airlines have resumed a code share agreement, ended last year. With this agreement, each airlines will enable the airlines to synchronise costs and equipment, while maximising profits.  Passengers will enable to book on both airlines websites.



John Mirenge, the RwandAir chief executive officer, said the arrangement will also extend   a range of aviation services to the travellers making the Kigali–Entebbe–Kigali route more competitive between the two airlines.


Code share enables different partnering airlines to synchronise flights, tickets and equipment to ease passenger movement.


Under the new agreement the two airlines will agree on joint charges, making  it possible for them to sell tickets on either carrier, with passengers free to choose which flight to take at their convenience


“Our code share partnership with Air Uganda will ensure commercial success as we look forward to a record surge in arrivals. It will also enhance our growth,” Mirenge noted.


Mirenge also stressed that the new deal will increase the airlines flight frequencies from 17 to 24 a week, thus boosting regional trade, especially the tourism and commerce sectors.


Cornwell Muleya, the Air Uganda boss, said the deal is not only good for the airlines, but also for East African Community integration.


“We need to integrate our aviation industry as a region as a trade bloc and this is one step towards that objective,” Muleya said.


He added that the agreement would make it possible for the airlines to provide flight interconnections to other points in their respective flight networks.
