One-on-One with Airtel Uganda Marketing Director, Indrajeet Singh Kumar.

Airtel Uganda, the Smartphone network recently introduced affordable international calling bundles to help its subscribers to keep in-touch with families staying abroad, traders, and businessmen to communicate on cheap rates.

We did have a one on one with Airtel Uganda Marketing Director, Indrajeet Singh Kumar and this is what he had to say about the International Calling Bundles.

Hello Indrajeet, so what good news does Airtel Uganda bring for us today?

Today, I am here with some good news, especially for people with family staying abroad, traders and businessmen. No more disconnected calls because Airtel Uganda International calls just got cheaper thanks to our international calling bundles.

That’s good news. So what does Airtel hope to achieve from this?

International calling in Uganda has always been perceived as expensive in the minds of the customer. We at Airtel Uganda have developed bundles that are cheaper than the standard call rates with an intention of fulfilling our promise to Ugandans; which is providing affordable and reliable telecommunications solutions.

So, who is eligible for this?

This is not a promotion. Therefore, all our subscribers can enjoy the best international calling rates.

Tell us about some of these bundles.

We have 5 different calling bundles.

Our very first bundle is for those who want to make calls in East Africa; that is Kenya, Rwanda and South Sudan. For as low as 2,800/= you can get to talk for ten minutes valid for one day and for 15,000/=, you get 60 minutes valid for 7 days.

For our second bundle, subscribers receive 60 minutes to call USA and China for as low as 7,500/= valid for 7 days. Additionally, for 11,500/= subscribers receive 60 minutes and 30 minutes to call India and Nigeria respectively – all valid for 7 days.

Our third bundle is for customers who want to call USA and Asia. The countries in this bundle are USA, Canada, China, India, Malaysia, Thailand, South Korea, Singapore and Hongkong. For 5,000/= subscribers receive 25 minutes valid for 7 days to call those countries. For 10,000/= subscribers will receive 55 minutes and for 20,000/= subscribers will receive 133 minutes valid for 30 days for both bundles.

In our fourth bundle, subscribers will receive 20 minutes valid for 7 days to call United Kingdom (UK), Germany, Pakistan, Sweden, Denmark, Japan, Greece, Australia, Finland, New Zealand and Indonesia.

Finally, for our fifth bundle, subscribers will receive 15 minutes of talk time valid for 7 days to call Nigeria, Mauritius and Namibia.

I think that is clear. So what is the charge for registering onto this service?

As I said, this service is for all Airtel Uganda subscribers. There is no charge. All you have to do is dial *146# or *100# and subscribe to an international bundle of your choice.

Do you have any other information you wish to share with our listeners?

Yes. I would like to encourage all Airtel subscribers and those who want to join the smartphone network to take advantage of these bundles to call their families, business partners and friends living anywhere across the globe.

Thank you

Emirates confirmed that its new First Class product will be showcased at the Dubai Air Show in November. Making its debut onboard a Boeing 777-300ER, Emirates’ new First Class cabin will feature 6 private suites laid out in a 1-1-1 layout, compared to the existing 8 private suites in a 1-2-1 layout on its existing 777 fleet.

In addition to the entirely redesigned First Class product, Emirates’ new Boeing 777-300ER will also boast a range of other new features in the Business and Economy Class cabins. Emirates will announce the destinations where the new Boeing 777-300ER is to be deployed in due course.

Sir Tim Clark, President Emirates Airline said: “Our products and services across cabin classes are continually improved and enhanced. But what our customers will see on Emirates’ new 777s starting from November, will be a much bigger revamp that takes our onboard experience to the next level. All cabins will sport a totally fresh new look. We are excited to showcase the results of years of planning and development invested into our new First Class offering, and our overall Emirates 777 experience.

Emirates is the world’s largest operator of the Boeing 777, flying 162 of these modern, efficient wide-body aircraft to six continents from its hub in Dubai.

The airline pioneered the private suite concept on commercial flights in 2003, establishing a new standard for First Class travel. Emirates’ track record of successful innovations that have raised the bar for the industry in terms of inflight customer experience include: Shower Spas and the Onboard Lounge onboard its A380 aircraft, unparalleled entertainment on demand in all classes with its award-winning ice system, and inflight connectivity through in-seat text, email and telephone services, as well as mobile and Wi-Fi services.
