ATCL to resume direct flight to China

AIR Tanzania (ATCL) will resume on Thursday May 11, 2023 direct flights from Dar es Salaam to Guangzhou, China, the State flag carrier announced in a public statement on Monday.

“The flights will be flying from Dar es Salaam to Guangzhou on every Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and from Guangzhou to Dar es Salaam on every Wednesdays, Friday and Sunday with a top over in Zanzibar,” the statement read.

Speaking earlier on Monday, Tanzania Ambassador to China Mbelwa Kairuki urged various passengers going to China to use Air Tanzania saying that the transportation has been made easy as it takes only ten hours to reach your destination.

“But also if you take the direct flight, you don’t have to undergo the polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test instead you will only be needed to do the Rapid tests which you can even do at your home,” he added.

On her side, Chinese Ambassador to Tanzania Chen Mingjian expressed her joy over ATCL’s move saying that it will boost trade and tourism through people-to-people exchanges between Tanzania and China.
