Tanzania airports - list of international airports in Tanzania

Tanzania airports

The tourist flow to Tanzania is growing every year, because it is here that you can see the magnificent African nature and wild animals in their natural habitat. Slender ranks of safari fans and the beaches of Zanzibar land en masse at Tanzanian airports, and travelers from Russia, for example, are not stopped by the lack of direct flights.
The easiest way is to fly from Moscow to Dar es Salaam with KLM, Swiss, Qatar Airlines or Emirates flights with connections to Amsterdam, Zurich, Doha or Dubai, respectively. The road will take from 13 to 16 hours, depending on the chosen route.

Tanzania International Airports

Foreign passengers are served by several airports in the country, and the capital, in Dodoma, is just international and is not:

  • Julius Nyerere Air Harbor is located 12 km south of Dar es Salaam. The city where the airport is located is the largest and most populous not only in the country, but throughout East Africa. Details of the operation of the largest airport in Tanzania on the website - www.jnia.aero.
  • Kilimanjaro Airport in the north-east of the country welcomes guests wishing to ride through the national parks of Tanzania and get to know more about the amazing African landscapes, savannah and its inhabitants. The runway at the Kilimanjaro air harbor has a length of 3,600 meters and is capable of receiving serious aircraft, and therefore KLM, Turkish Airlines, Kenya Airways and Qatar Airways fly here from Amsterdam, Istanbul, Nairobi and Doha. The planned renovation of this Tanzania airport will begin in 2016. Useful information on the website - www.kilimanjaroairport.co.tz.

There is no calendar on a beautiful island

The island of Zanzibar is becoming a destination for travelers who decide to organize their holidays in the best beach traditions. White sand and the ocean are the main attractions of the resorts of Zanzibar, and its air gates, after the last reconstruction, will be able to receive up to 1.5 million guests annually.
In 2015, work on the construction of a new second terminal continues, but for now international flights are accepted by the old air terminal. The map of the main directions of flights from the island airport of Tanzania named after Abeid Amani Karume looks very convincing:

  • Airplanes of Qatari, Omani, Kenyan and Dubai airlines land here on a regular basis..
  • Seasonal and charter flights to Zanzibar are on the schedules of Alitalia, Arkia Israel Airlines, Condor, Travel Service Airlines and TUI Airlines Netherlands from Rome, Tel Aviv, Frankfurt, Munich, Prague and Amsterdam.

Transfer to the selected resort is usually provided by the hotel or travel company organizing the trip. The distance from the passenger terminal to the island's capital of the same name, Zanzibar, is only 5 km, and independent travelers can take a taxi..
