Ndege Juu airline gets new board chairman


Patrick Bitature, a well-known local businessman and also presently serving as chairman of the Uganda Investment Authority, was earlier in the week introduced as the new chairman of the board of directors of Ndege Juu, a domestic charter airline based at the Kajjansi airfield just outside Kampala, along the main road to Entebbe.

Ndege Juu commenced operations in 2008 and has since then gradually established itself as a serious player in the otherwise hard fight over the domestic aviation market. Its fleet is best known for operating the branded MTN plane, which is used to enhance MTN’s marketing activities across the country from the air.
