Uganda Airlines has announced today that they are considering adding Nsenene delicacy to their regional and international flights menu.
This was after a video of a man illegally selling the local delicacy to passengers on flight made rounds on social media.
“Uganda Airlines’ attention has been drawn to a video of passengers on our flight no. 446 to Dubai on 26th November 2021 from Entebbe engaged in purchasing a local delicacy (Nsenene)” Reads part of the Uganda Airlines’ press statement.
“We have picked lessons from the incident. Some of our customers enjoy Nsenene. We understand that they were not in plenty this season hence the excitement. We are considering adding Nsenene, a Ugandan delicacy, to our menu for regional and international flights on request. This addition of Nsenene on our Menu will bring the Ugandan culture to the world. Our key products are people and the experience,” They added.
They believe that adding Nsenene will boost tourism marketing and the livelihood of people in the grasshopper value chain will be improved.
They however condemn the act of the passenger who was selling the Nsenene on board and ready to take measures as the act undermined the spirit of National carrier.
” We are in talks with passengers involved, and if there is another occurrence of such conduct on board, the passenger will be off-loaded without further consideration. No one should be exposed to an unruly market experience on our flight. The unacceptable disruptive behavior prevents the performance of critical duties of the flight crew.” The Airline said.
