AIR TANZANIA RESUMES MWANZA FLIGHTS AND LAUNCHES BUJUMBURA
(Posted 18th December 2013)
Air Tanzania has announced the launch of scheduled flights to Bujumbura / Burundi, with effect of Sunday, operating three times a week every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday. At the same time were flights launched to Mbeya, where ATCL will now compete with Precision Air, flying daily with an ATR turboprop and with FastJet, which operates since last Sunday daily with an Airbus A319. Air Tanzania will fly four times a week to Mbeya, using their Bombardier Q300 aircraft. Traffic days here are Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
The same source also confirmed that ATCL has re-launched daily flights to Mwanza, Tanzania’s main city on Lake Victoria where again they will have to compete with multiple daily flights by Precision Air and by FastJet.
No further news could be obtained though about the much talked about plans to get a major investor on board, leaving Air Tanzania at present to fly all their routes with a single turboprop aircraft. Happy Landings to passengers and crews on all the new and restored routes across Tanzania and the wider region.
