Meridiana Africa Airlines (Uganda) Limited, trading as Air Uganda, was a privately owned airline in Uganda from 2007 to 2014. It suspended its operations when the Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (UCAA) revoked the airline's air operator's certificate.
Air Uganda had been widely recognized as the national carrier since the collapse of Uganda Airlines in May 2001.
Headquartered in Kampala and with its operations base at Entebbe International Airport, Air Uganda used three aircraft to operate scheduled flights between Entebbe and various countries in eastern and central Africa.
Air Uganda was formed in 2007 and began commercial flight operations on 15 November 2007. It transported over 70,000 passengers within its first twelve months, with an average load factor of 70 percent between Entebbe and Juba, South Sudan. The load factor between Entebbe and Nairobiaveraged 60 percent during the first year of operation.
In the fourth quarter of 2011, Air Uganda announced plans to start domestic service during 2012. This required the airline to acquire appropriate aircraft to serve the domestic market.
During 2012, Air Uganda began self-handling at its hub at Entebbe International Airport and was authorised to handle any other airline that chose to use their handling services. The move saved the airline at least US$700,000 annually.
In November 2013, the airline marked the sixth anniversary of its founding. At that time, it was the only Ugandan airline licensed by the UCAA to operate regular scheduled flights to neighboring countries.
In May 2014, Air Uganda became a full member of the African Airlines Association, a trade organization of the industry on the continent. In the same month, the airline was admitted to the International Air Transport Association.
On 17 July 2014, Air Uganda suspended operations indefinitely after the issuer of its license, the UCAA, ran into problems. The UCAA had failed a safety audit by the International Civil Aviation Organisation in June 2014, resulting in the UCAA withdrawing licenses it had issued to air operators. At the time, Air Uganda said its potential re-certification was weeks away and that lessors had recalled their aircraft, opening a window for other carriers to grow passenger volumes in its area of operations.
