Online Payment

Once you've booked your flight online or through our Customer Centre, you can pay quickly and securely using MasterCard, Visa or American Express.

When you pay using a card, you’ll be charged an administration fee for the booking. Uganda Airlines will also ask to see the card at the airport before you board your flight.

Please note:

  • If a credit/debit card has been used to pay on behalf of someone else, we'll need to see a photocopy of the front and back of the credit or debit card and a photocopy of the cardholder's passport at the airport.
  • If the passenger is unable to produce the photocopies at the airport, Uganda Airlines will not allow the passenger to travel.
  • Credit or debit cards can’t be used to pay on behalf of someone else traveling to or from Somalia or South Sudan.

How it works:

  • In this option, during the booking process, the customer will be redirected to a secure payment page and will complete the payment process within this page.
  • The customer will be able to pay using any form of payment – cards, mobile, Paypal, QR codes and more
  • The whole process will be hosted in a single page and the customer will be able to change their preferred form of payment without any further redirect, all in one page.
  • Dynamic currency conversion service is also provided should a client so choose to use the currency of the card’s country of issue. (if different from USD)
  • The main advantage of this option: the payment page is a secure page which certified by the highest card industry standards globally: PCI DSS Level 1
