Airtel Money to MTN Mobile Money transfer service that had been temporarily suspended has been reactivated.

It’s now two months since the interoperability service had been deactivated.


The suspension had also affected transfers from MTN to Airtel.

In a statement announcing the reactivation, Airtel Uganda wrote:

“Airtel customers can now send and receive money from MTN customers. We highly regret the inconvenience this interruption caused.”


When the Airtel  Money to MTN Mobile Money transfer service was suspended, the telcos didn’t give a reason as to why but it came during the time Airtel was promoting its Sukumu Cash program that reduced sending rates. MTN was also running MoMo Nyabo.
