Business and tourism focus for Air Uganda's new CEO

Posted 22 April 2013 · Add Comment

Air Uganda's new CEO, Cornwell Muleya, says he plans to focus on business and tourism.

Muleya, appointed earlier this month, expressed his delight to be part of an exciting and growing airline like Air Uganda and said he looked forward to working with the airline’s team, and the people of Uganda, to further develop the network in order to enhance business and tourism. 

“I am especially impressed with the quality of the Air Uganda product and will work to ensure the airline continues to delight its customers and becomes a household name, not only in Uganda, but in east Africa and beyond,” he said.

Muleya has extensive airline management experience, having worked as a CEO and CFO for several airlines in Africa, including Air Mauritius, Air Botswana, Air Tanzania Company Ltd and Zambezi Airlines.

He joined Air Uganda from ALS in Kenya, where he had been the CEO of the growing aircraft leasing business for the past three years.

An engineer and chartered accountant, Muleya spent the early part of his career in audit and financial consulting with Deloitte and PriceWaterHouseCoopers.

Air Uganda was founded in 2007 and operates scheduled flights from its Entebbe hub to various countries in east Africa. The airline is a member of the Celestair Group, which is owned by the Aga Khan Fund for Economic Development (AKFED).

AKFED is an international development agency dedicated to promoting entrepreneurship and building economically sound enterprises in the developing world. It focuses on building enterprises in parts of the world that lack sufficient foreign direct investment.
