Tanzania’s national carrier, Air Tanzania Company Limited (ATCL), is planning to start flying to Kenya, Uganda, Rwanda and Burundi, Business Daily has reported.
The airline’s managing director, Mr Ladislaus Matindi, revealed the company’s plans during the company workers’ congress, saying all routes would be active from the next financial year.
“There is a significant improvement since the government started reviving ATCL and what we are currently targeting is to improve delivery of services and increase the number of routes,” he said.
The workers congress’ chairman, Mr Emmanuel Koroso, said ATCL is an established airline, but it faced financial challenges that affected its overall business operations.
“Initiatives by the government to revive ATCL are commendable, but we are facing some challenges that can only be resolved through dialogue,” Mr Koroso said.
