Tanzanian national carrier, Air Tanzania, has ushered in a new era of aviation by introducing its first Boeing 737 MAX 9 on October 3rd. The airline also becomes the first operator of this aircraft type in Africa.

The delivery of this Boeing 737 MAX 9 is the first of two ordered by the airline. The journey of the inaugural Boeing 737 MAX 9, with serial number 8729, was a long one. The aircraft left Seattle on September 30th, making stops in Puerto Rico and Dakar before finally arriving in Dar-es-Salaam in October 3rd. This journey culminated in the aircraft’s historic entry into Air Tanzania’s fleet, bearing the license plate 5H-TCP.

With this addition, Air Tanzania’s fleet has become even more diverse, offering passengers a broader range of travel options. Currently, the airline boasts a fleet that includes five Bombardier Q400s and four Airbus A220-300s, primarily used for regional flights.

For long-distance travel, Air Tanzania has two Boeing 787-8 Dreamliners at its disposal, ensuring passengers enjoy comfort and efficiency on their journeys. Furthermore, the airline operates cargo flights with a Boeing 767-300F, contributing to its overall operational versatility.

Air Tanzania’s expansion doesn’t stop here. The airline is eagerly awaiting the arrival of another Boeing 737 MAX 9 and a 787-8 Dreamliner, further enhancing its capacity and route offerings. With the addition of the Boeing 737 MAX 9, Air Tanzania aims to meet the burgeoning demand for air travel in key regions such as West Africa, Southern Africa, and India.
