As Uganda gears up to host the prestigious Non-Aligned Movement (NAM) and Group of 77 (G-77) + China South summits next week, the Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (UCAA) has unveiled the sizzling features of the newly upgraded Entebbe International Airport Terminal, promising a seamless experience for delegates and passengers alike.

The revamped terminal boasts state-of-the-art facilities, promising departing passengers a hassle-free experience. No longer burdened with lifting baggage from the parking lot, travelers will now be chauffeured directly to the terminal building, adding a touch of luxury to their journey. Similarly, arriving passengers will enjoy an expanded area, creating a more ambient environment for delegates and other travelers.

Mr. Vianney Luggya, the UCAA spokesperson, revealed, “All mechanisms have been put in place to ensure that delegates are smoothly welcomed into the country and seen off at ease.” The enhancements include an expansion of the aircraft parking aprons, allowing the airport to accommodate between 60 and 100 aircraft, depending on size.

With the two back-to-back summits set to attract between 1,000 and 1,500 delegates, including over 70 heads of states from 134 countries, the upgraded facilities aim to provide a world-class experience. The airport’s readiness was confirmed through a simulated dry run conducted on December 17, ensuring the efficiency of arrival and departure processes.

The ongoing construction of a new terminal building, scheduled to be completed in July 2024, is part of the broader National Aviation Master Plan, focusing on enhancing passenger facilitation. The NAM summit, themed “Deepening cooperation for shared global affluence,” will take place from January 15 to 20, followed by the G-77 conference with a focus on “Leaving no one behind” from January 21 to 23.

Mr. Fred Bamwesigye, UCAA’s executive director, emphasized their readiness to accommodate up to 70 aircraft, should each head of state bring their own. “We are ready to handle all of them, special teams have been organized to receive, specifically, NAM visitors,” he assured during a stakeholder meeting in Kampala.

The unveiling of the glamorous Entebbe International Airport Terminal adds a touch of sophistication to the upcoming global summits, signaling Uganda’s commitment to providing world-class facilities for international events.
