Air Tanzania resumes daily flights to Kenya after over 20-year hiatus

Air Tanzania

Nairobi, Kenya | Xinhua | Tanzania’s national flag carrier, Air Tanzania, resumed daily flights to Kenya on Friday after a hiatus of more than 20 years amid renewed business relations between the two east African neighbors.

The arrival of the Airbus A220-300 at 6:45 a.m. local time in Nairobi marked the start of the carrier’s daily Dar es Salaam to Nairobi route, which is strategic to the carrier’s fleet and network expansion plans in Africa.

“We are extremely delighted to resume the Nairobi route, which is one of the most significant destinations in East Africa and a key aviation hub as well,” said Ladislaus Matindi, CEO of Air Tanzania in a statement issued in Nairobi.

The restart of this route has been prompted by improved bilateral relations, increased trade between the two countries, tourism, extension of familial and friendly ties and the need to connect the region with other markets.
