The Chief Executive Officer of Uganda Airlines will earn a monthly salary of Shs 60 million according to documents seen by The Nile Post. This money excludes other allowances and benefits.
Ephraim Kalyebara Bagenda is currently the acting CEO of Uganda Airlines.
According to the same documents, the chief finance officer will earn Shs 50 million while the chief pilot will take home Shs 42 million per month. Flight captains will get Shs 38 million while the cabin crew including air hostesses will get Shs 3 million per month.
Uganda is set to re-launch its airline this year and the ministry of Works has asked Parliament to hurriedly approve Shs 283 billion which is the balance payment of the two A330 Neo- Airbuses.
Ntege Azuba, the minister for Works told the Budget Committee of Parliament on Friday that failure to clear this balance before the end of March 2019, could attract a penalty.
If the payment of the balance is done, Azuba said the two Airbuses will be delivered at Entebbe International Airport on the 8th of April this year.
The committee members however pressed the minister to present the business plan for the Uganda Airlines, the sustainability plan and the purchase agreement which led to an adjournment of the proceedings for two hours.
Following the recent air crash in Ethiopia, the legislators tasked the ministries to present the CV’s of the pilots and captains that intend to fly the Uganda Airlines.
