Press Release hub banner blue with title in red white and blueBucher has shipped the first set of fully customized galleys, stowages, and partition walls to Airbus Toulouse for their integration into the new Uganda Airlines A330-800neo and today the airline has taken delivery of the first aircraft.

The airline’s fleet currently consists of four Bombardier CRJ 900s and now two additional Airbus A330-800s for long-haul flights.

Bucher’s focus for this project was to enable Uganda Airlines to provide the best service possible for their passengers. To do so, Bucher developed exceptional features like flower holders in the Business Class area and provisions for easy adaptions of the galley layout for new catering requirements in the future e.g. increase of oven capacity or installation of wine chillers. A customized decoration of the monuments will provide a warm welcome to passengers and will help further create a comforting atmosphere within the cabin.

Commenting on the news, Ephraim K. Bagenda, Director of Maintenance, Uganda Airlines states: “I am delighted that Bucher delivered extraordinary galleys and stowages to Uganda’s new A330-800neo aircraft. The news is a  testament to the quality products and service that Bucher is renowned for, and marks the start of our working relationship together. We look forward to welcoming our passengers in these beautiful aircrafts.”


Quality has always been driving force at Bucher. This can be attributed to the founder of the company, Heinrich Bucher, who was inspired by the idea of producing lightweight and reliable galleys made out of aluminum. Bucher has continued to refine and optimize this unique lightweight construction concept. Nowadays, however, Bucher has expanded its product offering to also include composite and carbon fiber materials, thus allowing the company to easily and efficiently adapt its products to meet individual customer requirements. Bucher continues to be a global leader in all line fit and retrofit projects.
