Air Tanzania Lands in Geita

Air Tanzania, the flag carrier of Tanzania alias the Wings of Kilimanjaro has today made its maiden flight from Dar es Salaam to Geita, the gold town.

The flights to the country's gold capital Geita, were hiighly anticipated since the town is main gold producin region in the country. These flightss will be run every Monday, Thursday and Saturday.

Air Tanzania also resumed flights to Entebbe International Airport after almost six months of closure due to Covid-19. The Entebbe flights were resumed later last year and the Managing Director Air Tanzania Ladislaus Matindi was keen to point out that the flights would serve to promote investment in the region.

"We continue to extend the wings of Kilimanjaro over Africa and beyond so that the investment, trade and tourism opportunities presented by the resumption of these flights and the expansion of the network will certainly add value to our destination countries as we strive to offer affordable and improved connections," he noted in a statement that was read at the Entebbe International Airport in Uganda by his country representative.
