Emirates is set to upgrade its services to Uganda with the deployment of larger Boeing 777-200LR on the daily Dubai to Entebbe route from 1 October 2015. The Boeing 777-200LR will replace the current Airbus A330-200 used on the route, and increase the total number of seats across all cabin classes by 12 per cent, offering eight private suites in First Class, 42 lie-flat seats in Business Class and 216 seats in Economy Class. Emirates started services to Uganda in March 2000, with a thrice-weekly service linked with Nairobi, and later with Addis Abba, until it was delinked in 2007 and became a direct daily service between Dubai and Entebbe.
