Operations[edit]

The airfield is owned and operated by Mission Aviation Fellowship (MAF), an international Christian humanitarian relief and development organisation. In the mid-2010s, the Christian engineering charity Engineering Ministries International (EMI) redeveloped the terminal building of the airfield.[3] The new terminal building became the headquarters of both MAF Uganda and EMI East Africa.[4]
