Air Tanzania receives two Bombardier Q400s

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft has delivered two Q400 turboprops to the Tanzanian Government Flight Agency. The aircraft, which were newly delivered with a 76-seat, dual-lavatory configuration, will be operated by Air Tanzania, the national airline of the United Republic of Tanzania.

The delivery of the two aircraft increases the fleet of Q Series turboprops in Africa to approximately 125 aircraft including 40 Q400 aircraft.

“As we look to expand operations and increase our route network across Tanzania and the African continent, the technologically advanced Q400 aircraft is a key component in our growth strategy,” said Leonard Chamuriho, permanent secretary, Ministry of Transport, Works and Communication, Tanzania. “Its ability to operate at challenging airfields, combined with its fuel efficiency, excellent reliability and comfortable passenger amenities, make it a valuable addition to our fleet.”
