Air Tanzania to receive two Airbus jets
President John Magufuli prioritised investment in Air Tanzania when he took office in 2015, aiming to revive the loss-making carrier because of the potential to boost the vital tourism sector, a top foreign exchange earner.
The airline will take delivery of two Airbus 220-300 planes in December, each with capacity to carry more than 130 passengers, government spokesman Hassan Abbas told a news conference. He did not say how much the aircraft will cost. ■
