Airtel Uganda has revised its Airtel Money withdraw charges. In what seems to be a bid to welcome customers that withdraw large amounts, the telecom company has increased the maximum transaction amount from UGX 5,000,000 to UGX 7,000,000 and also reduced the maximum withdraw fee.
As per the revisions made, all withdraw transactions between UGX 1 and UGX 1,000,000 will not have their rates changed. Rather, the changes apply to withdraws above the million mark.
Withdrawing between UGX 1,000,001 and 2,000,000 will cost you UGX 7,300 less than the initial 19,800; withdrawing between UGX 2,000,001 and 4,000,000 will cost you UGX 22,700 less than the initial 35,200; and withdrawing between 4,000,001 and 7,000,000 should cost you UGX 37,000 less than the initial 49,500.
This all implies that withdrawing above the one million mark or between UGX 1,000,001 and 7,000,000 will cost a flat fee of UGX 12,500.
Airtel says the changes from this will take effect on 31st October 2019.

Airtel also recently brought back its Mega Massape promotion, a counter attack on MTN Uganda’s data promo that lets customers double their data and voice bundles after achieveing set targets.
All you have to do is dial *162#, and select 1 to know your target. Once you are aware of this target, you have to keep on loading airtime to beat the limit set for you after which you will then be able to double any data and voice bundles you purchase. You can as well keep dialing option 2 to know how far you have gone in beating the target.
