The Government of Tanzania has lifted the ban on international flights on 18 May 2020. Both non-scheduled and scheduled air services, such as commercial passenger flights, diplomatic flights, aircraft in emergency and operations related to humanitarian aid, medical and relief, are allowed to land in and depart from Tanzanian airports without any restrictons. According to the country’s President John Magufuli, travellers are allowed to enter Tanzania without being quarantined as long as their body-temperature don’t point to anything unusual. Tanzania closed its airspace on 11 April 2020 as a measure to curb the spread of the coronavirus.
The President also directed Tanzania’s state-owned flag carrier airline Air Tanzania to resume operations to countries that have opened their skies or those seeking the airline’s services.
