Air Tanzania has taken delivery of new Bombardier Q-400 aircraft from Bombardier Commercial Aircraft, Canada, reports the Afritraveller.

 

The aircraft touched this week at Julius Nyerere International Airport, Dar es Salaam to a water canon salute witnessed by President John Pombe Magufuli and other officials.

The 79-seater plane is the third to be bought by the government of Tanzania since President John Magufuli took over power.

Air Tanzania is expected to take delivery of three more aircraft before the end of this year including two Bombardier C300 and a Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.
