By Opio Jackson
A direct flight from Juba to Gulu is expected to be launched tomorrow (Friday).
Cosmos Gombura, Managing Director of Sky Tours and Travel Aviation Company Limited said after Yei and Arua, they were expanding to Gulu city.
“We decided to strategize ourselves as a local company to fly to Gulu due to the very high demand from the people who live in both Juba and Gulu,” he said.
Cosmos stressed that there were very much common cultures with the people in northern region of Uganda.
“The Acholi community was originally from South Sudan and we are excited to facilitate that move but also to exhibit the beauty of entire South Sudan to the outside world,” he said.
“Through our tourism we tend to launch tourists’ activities in South Sudan, people can come and visit the city of Juba and very many other areas we have here,” Cosmos added.
The fights are scheduled on every Friday afternoon and Monday morning.
“This is not the first time, we have been flying to Yei, Arua and now we are expanding to Gulu,” Cosmos explained.
He asserted that due to good track record, Sky Tours and Travel Aviation consider itself a major partner to the international flights such as the Rwanda Air, KQ, 540 and Emirates fly Dubai.”
