Uganda Airlines is a proposed start-up carrier to be based at Entebbe International Airport. It is planned that the new airline will assume the status of national carrier after Air Uganda was grounded in Jun-2014 following an audit by ICAO. Uganda's Civil Aviation Authority will now hold further discussions with the country's Ministry of Works and Transport, Ministry of Finance, Planning and Economic Development, Cabinet and potential shareholders on plans to establish the new carrier. Uganda's State Minister for Works and Transport Aggrey Bagiire said plans to establish Uganda Airlines are "in advanced stages" and the airline would be operational. A launch of Jun-2019 has been advised. The establishment of Uganda Airlines is expected to cost USD388 million, with the country seeking a private investor. The airline will initially be fully owned by the government and managed by Uganda Development Corporation with shares to be subsequently offered to the private sector. Uganda's Finance Minister has stated the new airline is not a priority, as surface transport projects are an immediate concern. However, Tourism Uganda stated Uganda's Cabinet approved a task force to spearhead the revival of a national airline.
