Planning to vacay in the gorgeous Tanzania? Air Tanzania will resume direct flights to India by November after nearly 20 years of break.
What Is It?
If you’re planning to holiday in the beautiful Zanzibar islands or hike to Mount Kilimanjaro, you can hop on a direct flight to Tanzania by November 2018. In the mid 90s, direct flights from India to Tanzania were stopped due to the infrequency of travellers, but as Indian tourists are taking more and more trips abroad, Air Tanzania decided to bank on the opportunity to introduce direct flights once again.
What Do We Know?
At first, 4 flights per week will be flying from Mumbai to Dar Es Salaam. They’re also planning flights from Delhi, but for now the only approval is for Mumbai airport. This service will be starting by November 2018 and the tourism board is confident that Tanzania and Zanzibar islands will prove to be a good tourist destination for the Indians. The visa and flight costs are still to be worked out, but you’ll be updated soon!
