Beginning November 1, 2021, Network Aviation Group disclosed that it has been the appointed Cargo General Sales & Services Agent (GSSA) for Air Tanzania in Kenya, with The United Kingdom (UK) and The United Arab Emirates (Dubai) listed as offline sale points.
Air Tanzania’s flights from Nairobi (NBO) to Dar Es Salaam (DAR) started from the November 26, 2021 and operates two A220 pax flights daily.
The Tanzanian national flag carrier has also expressed interest to fly to the UK and Dubai, aiming to launch flights by the end of 2022.
Peter Njambi, cargo sales manager for Network Airline Services in Nairobi, said, “We look forward to working with Air Tanzania and we are confident this will be a successful partnership for both companies.”
Last year, the Tanzanian government placed an order for a B767-300 freighter to be operated by Government-owned Air Tanzania.
The freighter will “be used to capitalise on Africa’s burgeoning cargo demand” with demand on the African continent growing rapidly over the last 12 months, according to official IATA numbers.
Air Tanzania chief executive Ladislaus Matindi said: “Adding to our B787 fleet, the introduction of the B737 Max and B767 freighter will give Air Tanzania exceptional capability and flexiIGbility to meet passenger and cargo @demand within Africa and beyond.”
