Tanzania’s national airline, Air Tanzania Company Limited (ATCL), announced on Wednesday four new regional routes effective from November.

Josephat Kagirwa, ATCL’s communications officer, told a news conference in the business capital Dar es Salaam that the new routes will include Bujumbura in Burundi, Ndola in Zambia, Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Nairobi in Kenya.

Last week, Tanzania received two brand new planes it has bought from Canadian manufacturers, bringing to 11 the total number of acquired new aircraft intended to revive the country’s national airline.

Kagirwa said the introduction of new regional routes was part of the airline’s five-year strategic plan that started in 2017 which included expansion and establishment of new regional and international routes.
