The Uganda Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) has informed the public that passengers on night flights that arrive or depart past the stipulated curfew hours will be allowed to proceed to and from the airport.
UCAA, however, advises that such passengers should posses necessary travel documents including valid evidence of their air ticket or boarding pass which will be presented to the officers on duty enforcing curfew.
Drivers who pick the travellers to and off the airport have also been advised to keep evidence from the airport such as airport parking tickets to avoid any inconveniences on the way.
“Passengers on night flights after curfew with valid evidence of air ticket or boarding pass shall be allowed to proceed. Drivers should also keep evidence of coming from the airport such as airport parking ticket,” CAA shared on their social media pages.
Commenting on the matter, Mr. Vianney Luggya, the Public Affairs and Communications Manager at UCAA told ChimpReports that the move is aimed at protecting passengers whose flights’ arrival or departure time is past curfew hours.
“The Authority deemed it necessary to help passengers who were worried about curfew yet arriving or taking off on night flights,” Luggya said.
