For instance, flying between Tanzania and Uganda requires one to connect through Nairobi’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport or Rwanda’s Kigali International Airport. Air Tanzania wants to solve this.
The national flag carrier of Tanzania is introducing new direct flight routes in the East African region. Particularly these direct flights will be from Dar es Salaam to Entebbe and Bujumbura, a hint at competition with incumbent Kenya Airways and RwandaAir that have dominated the routes in Nairobi and Kigali respectively.
The carrier company revealed that they will start a four-times-a week direct flight to Entebbe from Dar es Salaam, charging $363 (about 827,000/-) for a return ticket while flying on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
