Uganda suspended all incoming and outgoing passenger flights on March 22,  as a measure to forestall the spread of coronavirus disease. As a result, Entebbe International Airport has been partially shut down with only cargo and emergency flights in operation. 

However,  Uganda Civil Aviation Authority-UCAA expects that Entebbe Airport will resume passenger flights by June 26. But before resuming operations the agency has put in place stringent measures to combat the spread of coronavirus disease-COVID-19 at the Airport. 

They have created more space to enable social distancing, installing automated document readers to eliminate excessive scanning passport pages and e- boarding pass readers and other glass shields at the baggage check-in points to reduce contact between passengers and immigration, customs and health officers. 

The measures stem from guidelines from international and national authorities to ensure the safety of travellers across the globe.  URN visited the airport and brings you the set up in pictures.
