Uganda Passenger's Protection Association (UPPA)

AirSafe.com has always supported any efforts by passengers and passenger organizations to address issues of passenger service, saftey, and security. A new organization in Africa, the Uganda Passenger's Protection Association (UPPA), is one such organization. Based in Kampala, Uganda, the organization will work with the Uganda Passengers Protection Centre and other partner organizations to lobby the Ugandan government to strengthenexisting regulations, improve aviation infrastructure, and enhance other safety standards and policies that attend to the rights and needs of passengers. It will also under take research in passengers protection programs and provide related technical services to support its goal of cutting accidents in half by 2015.

If you are interested in supporting this organizaiton, I encourage you to contact them at the following address:
