Etihad Airlines Cancels Entebbe Operations

Etihad Airlines confirmed in a statement yesterday that they were cancelling the Entebbe service effective next year on March 25th.

Passengers who have already booked flights after March 25th will be re-routed to Kenya Airways according to the announcement.

The airline also offered refunds for wholly or partially utilized tickets.

The Airline however, did not disclose reasons for the cancellation of the Entebbe route.
