Final stage Photos appeared on the eve of Thursday conforming final touches being made on one of the four CRJ900 aircraft ordered by the national airline.
The photos which emerged on social media showed one of them in a paint hanger.
Uganda Airlines which was liquidated in 2001 following failed attempts to privatize it, is hoped to take back to the skies early next year.
Its also remembered that Uganda in July this year placed a firm order for the four ultra-modern aircraft valued at $190 million (Shs 711Billion)
Uganda Airlines is expected to operate the CRJ900 in dual-class configuration with 76 seats, including 12 first class seats.
Key features of the new interior are comprised of larger passenger living space, wheel-first roller bag capability, more spacious lavatory, increased cabin connectivity options, all integrated in a contemporary design and material choices.

The first Bombardier, Azuba said, will arrive in the country at the end of January next year, while the other three will come in one after every month.
