The 2024 awards were presented in Hamburg, Germany, where chief executive Jenifer Bamuturaki said the 5-year-old airline was “excited to receive this award because it is a true testament to our product excellence and sustainable innovation.”

Uganda Airlines competed in the Premium Economy category, against legacy carriers KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Finnair and United Airlines. News of the victory was first brought to the attention of the Ugandan market via the carrier’s social media handles in April. However, speaking during the inaugural Uganda Airlines Suppliers Forum June 26, Ms Bamuturaki used the kit’s international recognition as an example of opportunities local suppliers could innovate around, to break into supplying the carrier and also play in the international marketplace.

The kit, made by Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan – based Ferents & Co, features elements of backcloth is inspired by Uganda’s traditional textures and adorned with an embroidered golden crowned crane. Inside, travelers will find eco-friendly items including a bamboo toothbrush, earplugs in a craft flow pack, natural moisturizing face and hand creams from Bueno, a sleep mask, and cozy socks.

Travel Plus magazine’s readers selected it for its eco-friendly credentials, which vividly communicate the Ugandan flag carrier’s commitment to the environment and sustainable growth.

According to Bamuturaki, these kits reflect Uganda Airlines’ philosophy of environmental responsibility, aiming to inspire travelers to be more conscious of their ecological impact.

“This recognition underscores the airline’s dedication to reducing its environmental footprint while providing a comfortable and culturally rich travel experience,” she added.
