Uganda Airlines was the flag carrier of Uganda. The airline was established in May 1976, and started operations in 1977. It was headquartered in Entebbe, Wakiso District, Uganda, and operated from its hub in Entebbe International Airport.
Attempts were made by the Government of Uganda to privatise the company, but all potential bidders pulled out, eventually leading to the liquidation of Uganda Airlines Corporation in May 2001. In 2013 there were plans from the government to revive the carrier.Following the Ugandan Civil Aviation Authority revoking Air Uganda's AOC over safety concerns in June 2014, discussions restarted in late 2014
