Airports & Airlines

Julius Nyerere International Airport Dar es Salaam; Tanzania’s air hub.

Kilimanjaro International Airport Between Arusha and Moshi, and the best option for itineraries in Arusha and the northern safari circuit. Note: not to be confused with the smaller Arusha Airport (ARK), 8km west of Arusha, which handles domestic flights only.

Zanzibar International Airport On Zanzibar Island, at the southern edge of Zanzibar Town; handles frequent charter flights from Europe, as well as several international carriers.

Other airports handling regional flights include Arusha Airport, Mtwara Airport and Mwanza Airport.

A useful website for researching and booking East African regional flights is www.tripindigo.com. Tanzania's flagship carrier is Air Tanzania, with domestic destinations, plus a small but growing network of regional and (soon) international destinations. The airline, which was essentially defunct for many years, has gotten a new lease on life and is well worth watching in the coming years. Other useful regional and international carriers include the following (all servicing Dar es Salaam, except as noted):

Fastjet Johannesburg (South Africa), Harare (Zimbabwe) and Lusaka (Zambia) to Dar es Salaam.

Kenya Airways Nairobi and Mombasa to Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.

Linhas Aéreas de Moçambique (www.lam.co.mz) Maputo (Mozambique), Pemba (Mozambique) and Nampula (Mozambique) to Dar es Salaam.
