Uganda is looking for partners to finance a $ 400 million Master Plan for the country's aviation industry. The Civil Aviation project will see a total overhaul and expansion of the Entebbe International Airport and the upgrading of several airstrips. CCTV's Michael Baleke has that report.
Entebbe International Airport has for long been below standards, compared to other international airports.

This phase is expected to be completed by end of 2017. This is the artistic impression of how the airport will look like, according to the construction team. There will be two additional ...

AJAY JAIN Do you like the thought of visiting Africa? And Uganda in specific? I have noticed some people looking a bit unsure at the prospect of going to Uganda - after all, we don’t come across too many who have been to the country.

While you think about a trip to the country, here are a few tips for you. 1. GETTING THERE Not too many airlines serve the country - and you may have to hop a few airports to get there.

Goma is the biggest city in Easter Congo – with a population of half a million. The Goma airport is located in the middle of town. In January 2002 the volcano Niyragongo erupted and buried large parts of the city and the airport under massive layers of lava. Although parts of the runway cannot be used anymore, the pilots keep using it to take off and land planes. The location of the Goma airport makes the situation for the residents particularly dangerous. In 2008 a plane shot over the end of the runway into the city and killed 47 people – most of the dead were visitors to the local market. The reconstruction of the runway started not till seven years after the volcanic eruption. The Department for Foreign Affairs of the Federal Republic of Germany financed the construction work, whil...
