Air Tanzania to Expand Fleet with Two CS300 and One Q400 Aircraft

The United Republic of Tanzania, represented by the Tanzanian Government Flight Agency (TGFA), has signed firm purchase agreements with Bombardier for two CS300 jetliners and one Q400 turboprop aircraft.

The aircraft will be leased to and operated by Air Tanzania (The Wings of the Kilimanjaro) based in Dar es Salaam.

Based on list prices, the combined value of the orders is approximately US$200 million.

Like the two Q400 turboprop aircraft delivered to the TGFA for lease and operation by Air Tanzania in September 2016, the third, which has just been ordered, will have an all-economy 76-seat interior with two lavatories.

 The two CS300 airliners will be configured in a dual-class layout, and will be equipped with WiFi internet and in-flight entertainment.

We are delighted that the Q400 aircraft which entered service with Air Tanzania earlier this year are proving their superior economics and versatility, said Jean-Paul Boutibou, Vice President, Sales, Africa and the Middle East, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. The CS300 aircraft will allow Air Tanzania to expand both its domestic and regional markets, and it has the range to open new international destinations such as the Middle East and India at the lowest cost. The C Series jet aircraft have the right attributes to develop these markets.
