We are proud of our beautifully equipped plane which features a three class layout, including a fully lie-flat business class” said Cornwell Muleya, CEO of Uganda Airlines.

 

“We are delighted to be Uganda Airlines’ choice for the outfitting of the long haul Economy and Premium Economy Class on such a rare aircraft, said Alberto Veneruso, managing director of Geven. “Working together with Uganda’s team for the first time was a huge inspiration for Geven. The enthusiasm and outstanding integration of Uganda, Airbus and Geven teams have played a significant role in this successful delivery. We have worked closely with a cooperative approach from the early stages of this 9 months process. Grateful for Uganda Airlines’ trust, we look forward to continue and strengthen our collaboration in the future.”

 

“Outfitting the Economy Class of the A330-800neo with 210 PIUMA AQ in a 2-4-2 layout, brings total seat number installed of this model up to 80.000 units,” said Giovanni Vitiello, programme manager at Geven.
