Air Tanzania, the national carrier, will buy two new Airbus jets and one plane from De Havilland Canada. Since taking over the airline, president John Magufuli has spent big in his attempt to re-energise Air Tanzania, purchasing eight new planes. A statement from the office of president Magufuli said Magufuli “has already issued instructions for the purchase of three additional planes (two Airbus jets and one De Havilland) to expand air services and improve tourism”. The airline’s existing fleet includes one Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, two Airbus A220-300 jets and three DHC Dash 8-400 aircraft, formerly known as the Bombardier Q400 turboprop.
