Air Tanzania is the flag carrier of Tanzania based in Dar es Salaam with its hub at Julius Nyerere International Airport.


Air Tanzania flies to destinations such as Arusha, Moroni, Dar es Salaam, Kigoma, Mbeya, Mtwara, Mwanza and Tabora.

The airline operates passenger services to the main destinations in Tanzania including Julius Nyerere – Dar Es Salaam International Airport and Kigoma Airport.


Air Tanzania was relaunched in 2007 after its five year partnership with giant South African Airways was dissolved when it commenced operations from Dar es Salaam - Kilimanjaro - Mwanza.


Air Tanzania has code shares with Air Uganda and Air Zimbabwe and was established in 1977 to operate the services suspended following the break up of East African Airways which was jointly owned by Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya.


In November 2011, Air Tanzania resumed services following the return of one Bombardier Q300. Air Tanzania's fleet consists of Bombardier Dash 8 Q300 and Bombardier CRJ200.





Air Tanzania's baggage allowance depends upon the fare purchased and type of aircraft flown on.


Usually, checked baggage is limited to one piece not exceeding 23kg and hand baggage 1 piece of up to 10kg.

Tanzania: Finally, Four Air Tanzania Company Planes Arrive in July

FOUR newly procured planes for Air Tanzania Company Limited (ATCL) are expected in the country next July, the government announced here yesterday.

The Director of Information Services, Dr Hassan Abbas said the new planes from the Canadian Bombardier Manufacturer will arrive in the next four months. The government statement ends months of speculations on the fleet plight.

The government signed a firm purchase agreement with Bombardier Commercial Aircraft for the two Q400 turboprop airliners in July 2016. The 76-seater aircraft chiefly for commercial airline operations were pegged at 62 million US dollars (over 140bn/-).The state further signed another 224.6 million US dollar (over 500bn/-) deal for one Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner and jetliners CS300 to add up to the already delivered two Q400 planes.

"I understand there have been lots of rumours going on out there, but I'm here to assure you that our new planes, including the Boeing 787-8 will arrive this July," he said. Dr Abbas decried the efforts doomsters were investing to frustrate the national flag carrier revival initiatives, saying, "They will all fail because the government is determined to revive the airline company.

" It was earlier reported that the Tanzanian aircraft, Bombardier Q400, which was previously scheduled to arrive in the country last July, was seized in Canada due to the government failure to pay 38 million US dollars it owed the UK's Stirling Civil Engineering Limited.

Tanzania: Govt Says No More Delays in JNIA Work

Dar es Salaam — The government said yesterday that construction of Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA) Terminal 3 should be completed before the end of this year as scheduled.

The Minister of Works, Transport and Communications, Prof Makame Mbarawa, said the project was 68 per cent complete, adding that there should be no further delays in its construction.

"Construction is going on well, and we expect the job to be completed before the end of this year as scheduled," he said during a tour of the site.

The terminal was initially scheduled to be completed last year, but the completion date was pushed back to October, this year, due to various reasons.

Prof Mbarawa said the new terminal would play a key role in boosting trade and tourism.

Its completion is expected to greatly increase JNIA's capacity and ease the pressure in Terminal 2, which is currently operating beyond its capacity.

Air Tanzania signs MoU with Ethiopia on pilot training

Air Tanzania Company Limited (ATCL) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Ethiopian Aviation Academy, aimed at helping Tanzanian pilots and engineers undergo capacity building training in Ethiopia.

Speaking in Dar es Salaam during the signing ceremony, ATCL Managing Director, Ladislaus Matindi said 12 pilots and seven aircraft engineers will operate on the new Bombadier Q400 and Dreamliner 787 which are expected in the country soon.

"We have reached an agreement and our pilots and aircraft engineers will start training between November and December, this year, to receive training on operations of the new Bombardier aircraft after they arrive," he explained.

Expounding further, he said the aim of the training is to increase the number of qualified pilots and aircraft engineers who will serve with the national carrier. According to him, the MoU will help its employees to get capacity building training at affordable costs.

Tanzanian Airline Rivals Pursue Common Goal

Air Tanzania CEO Ladislaus Matindi has given himself five years to reverse his company’s fortunes after his predecessors virtually ran it aground. In charge of the airline since last September, Matindi aims to win back market share, stimulate the economy and boost Tanzania’s unquestionable tourism potential.

Air Tanzania (ATC) today operates two aircraft, one Bombardier Q400 and one Q300, and plans call for a further Q400 due by the end of this month and three more—a Boeing 787 and two Bombardier CS100s—next year. “Currently, we have 11 domestic routes and one international [destination], Moroni in the Comoros Islands,” Matindi told AIN at company headquarters in Dar es Salaam. “Soon we will be opening up new routes to Nairobi, Entebbe and Bujumbura.”

Today, Tanzania has three scheduled airlines: Air Tanzania, Precision Air and Fastjet. “[All three] have been struggling,” he noted. “The government is putting in money to revamp ATC.”

Matindi opined that African governments must “invest” in airlines to help them grow, although many have squandered state funds to support ailing flag carriers. He argues for the need for airport infrastructure improvements countrywide to allow nighttime operations.

He wants the Boeing 787 Dreamliner to serve as ATC’s flagship as the airline renews the fleet, and he aims to start flights to Europe, Asia and the U.S. His revelation that ATC’s first Dreamliner will launch services next year raised some intrigue, after Tanzania earlier signaled a wish to reduce reliance on Chinese support by indefinitely shelving the Bagamoyo Megaport project in favor of upgrading the existing Dar es Salaam port.

Meanwhile, Sauda Rajab, CEO of fellow Tanzanian regional carrier Precision Air, continues work on cutting persistent losses. “It is a challenge, but we are not there yet,” she said. “We have about seven aircraft in operation; one is about to clear a C-check. We have five ATR72-500s and two ATR42-500s. Recently, because of overhauls, we have been able to put in extra frequencies on some routes, especially Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar.

“At the same time, a second ATR 42-500 has allowed us to start looking at other niche markets. Recently we went back to Entebbe, and we have just announced the start of operations to Kahama, a mining area. We also just announced that by October we will be operating to Seronera [in the Serengeti]. It’s a huge country and it is not fully covered at the moment.”

She referred to the African concept of “co-opetition,” in reference to Air Tanzania, to prevent price wars. “I don’t think at the moment that we are complementary,” she said. “However there is room for us to actually cooperate. You could cover a lot wider [area] in Tanzania, and look at the region’s growth.”

She agreed that nighttime operations at Tanzania’s airports would benefit the airline; today, flights operate only from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. “There is a lot going on at night in Dar es Salaam and Nairobi,” she noted.
