Air Tanzania’s B787-8 Dreamliner lands at JNIA

The much-awaited Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner for Air Tanzania landed finally at the Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA) for the first time. President John Magufuli was the guest of honor who graced the event to receive the plane that will be leased to the airline. The plane touched down at the country’s major international gateway from US.

The aircraft is part of the Air Tanzania’s plans to grow its operations across Africa as well as to international destinations. The brand new 787 is the first wide body airplane to join Tanzania’s flag carrier’s fleet.

“We believe this is the perfect aircraft to realise our ambition to connect with the rest of the world through the initiation of intercontinental flights. I am delighted to be here with Boeing and Rolls-Royce to celebrate this milestone,” said Air Tanzania CEO Ladislaus Matindi.

The new aircraft becomes the fourth among seven aircrafts that have been bought by the administration of the fifth phase government that took office in November 2015.
