Air Tanzania has announced that it will start flying to the Chinese city of Guangzhou and the Thai capital of Bangkok in February next year. As the third-largest city in China, Guangzhou is among the world’s oldest and busiest trade hubs; while Bangkok is the most populous city in Thailand.

These new routes will be served by the Tanzanian flag carrier’s new Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner, with flights thrice weekly on Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday from the airline’s hub at Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam.

The brand-new 787 is the first wide-body airplane to join Tanzania’s flag carrier’s fleet, with a seating capacity of 262 passengers in a three-class configuration.

Air Tanzania’s Distribution and Sales Manager Edward Nkwabi said that the airline targets those cities as they are major commercial centers, with many Tanzanians traveling there to shop for various kinds of merchandise.
