Tanzania has lifted the ban on airlines from Kenya to resume flights bringing to an end to the airspace feud between the two countries.
The Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) Wednesday announced that it had lifted the suspension that hit Kenya Airways, AirKenya Express, Fly540, and Safarilink Aviation.
In a statement, TCAA director-general Hamza Johari said the authority was acting on a reciprocal basis after the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA), included Tanzania on a revised list of countries exempted from the 14-day mandatory quarantine upon arrival.
“In view of that and on a reciprocal basis, Tanzania has now lifted the suspension for all Kenyan Operators namely, Kenya Airways, Fly 540 Limited, Safarilink Aviation, and AirKenya Express Limited,” Mr Johari said.
As a result, Kenya Airways said it will resume flights to the country on Monday, September 21 with a morning flight and second flight on 23.
“We shall be having two flights henceforth. Zanzibar flights will resume on September 26 on three flights weekly on Monday, Wednesday and Saturday,” said KQ in a statement on Wednesday.
