A total of 157,209 passengers passed through Entebbe International Airport in May 2023 (77,912 departures and 79,297 arrivals), an average of 5,071 per day.
The May traffic was higher than the April 2023 traffic by an average of 775 passengers per day.
It is also worth noting that arriving passengers were more than departing passengers in May 2023.
Returning pilgrims from Umrah partly contributed to the surge in traffic.
A number of pilgrims are scheduled to travel to Mecca through Entebbe International Airport from June 13-20, 2023.
Owing to the likely traffic build up, departing passengers are advised to plan for more time so as to avoid missing flights during that period.
