Uganda Airlines expands global distribution with Hahn Air’s HR-169 product

Ugandan Airlines has expanded global distribution with Hahn Air’s R-169 product to back its growth strategy with a well-honed marketing plan.

The goal is to allow its passengers to purchase their tickets almost anywhere in the world.

In a statement on Tuesday, the airline said the partnership intends to base its growth strategy on a well-refined marketing plan.

On June 23, the Ugandan flag carrier signed the interline agreement with German airline and ticketing solutions provider Hahn Air.

The new collaboration will allow Uganda Airlines’ tickets to be sold in other markets where it is not a member of the Billing and settlement plan (BSP).

This is a central point that consolidates ticket data and payments made by travel agents in a region or country.

Uganda Airlines will be able to leverage Hahn air’s network of over 100,000 travel agents in 190 markets worldwide.

“Fares and flight availability are now available through Hahn Air’s HR-169 tickets on the Amadeus and Galileo global distribution systems,” the statement read.

Based in Entebbe, Uganda Airlines currently serves about ten sub-regional routes, with Johannesburg being the most recent destination opened on May 31.

In its expansion plan, the airline is also eyeing Johannesburg, Lusaka, Harare, Khartoum, Addis Ababa, Lagos, Accra, Goma and Lubumbashi. Outside Africa, Uganda Airlines – which recently signed an interline agreement with Emirates – plans to connect Guangzhou, Mumbai, Dubai and London.

Traffic rights have already been secured for the latter two routes. Its fleet includes four CRJ900s and two A330neo aircraft.
