KQ Resumes Tanzania Flights

NAIROBI, Kenya, Sep 21- Kenya Airways has resumed flights to the United Republic of Tanzania following the lifting of the suspension of all Kenyan aviation operators by the Tanzanian Government.

This follows a circular issued by the Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority announcing the resumption and restoration of all flights by Kenyan operators with immediate effect.

“We are pleased to resume our services to Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar following this announcement by the Tanzanian Government. Tanzania is critical to both Kenya and East Africa’s economic growth and we look forward to our continued collaboration,” said Allan Kilavuka, Kenya Airways Group Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer.
