The Uganda Civil Aviation Authority has unveiled new restrictions at Entebbe International Airport aimed at curtailing the spread of Covid19.
Starting today, Saturday, the Authority announced, a passenger will be allowed only two persons escorting them to the airport.
“Departing and arriving passengers will only be dropped or picked from the airport by at most two people, including the driver of the car in order to avoid unnecessary crowding at the airport,” the Authority announced.
“Please note that vehicles with more than the authorized number of people will not be allowed to access the airport.”
The Civil Aviation is already enforcing a string of other guidelines to be followed by passengers at the airport, since it was reopened last month.
Among others, departing passengers required to have an authentic and valid negative COVID-19 PCR) test certificate issued within 120 hours from the time of sample collection to the time of boarding the aircraft even if the country the passenger is going to does not require it.
