Air Tanzania is the flag carrier of Tanzania based in Dar es Salaam with its hub at Julius Nyerere International Airport. Air Tanzania operates passenger services to the main destinations in Tanzania including Julius Nyerere – Dar Es Salaam International Airport and Kigoma Airport. Air Tanzania was relaunched in 2007 after its five year partnership with giant South African Airways was dissolved when it commenced operations from Dar es Salaam - Kilimanjaro - Mwanza. Air Tanzania has code shares with Air Uganda and Air Zimbabwe. Air Tanzania flies to destinations such as Arusha, Moroni, Dar es Salaam, Kigoma, Mbeya, Mtwara, Mwanza and Tabora.
Air Tanzania was established in 1977 to operate the services suspended following the break up of East African Airways which was jointly owned by Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. In November 2011, Air Tanzania resumed services following the return of one Bombardier Q300. Air Tanzania's fleet consists of Bombardier Dash 8 Q300 and Bombardier CRJ200. Air Tanzania's baggage allowance depends upon the fare purchased and type of aircraft flown on. Usually, checked baggage is limited to one piece not exceeding 23kg and hand baggage 1 piece of up to 10kg.
