Budget Community Air Launches in TZ

From East African Business Week, Kampala, Uganda

A new air cargo and passenger service operator in the Tanzanian skies, Community Airlines, has been established "purposely for stimulating a new market in the country which has not yet been fully tapped."

Speaking to East African Business Week last week in Dar es Salaam, Mr. Paul Chizi, the airline's Chief Executive Officer, said the company is owned entirely by local shareholders.

"The name Community Airlines was adopted as a reflection of the Tanzanian community - which means it is a true people's choice, because of its specialized services and operations," Chizi said.

"It also symbolizes its fares structure and services, which are both competitive and affordable for members of the Tanzanian community whatever their economic capability."

The airline's single fare from Dar es Salaam to Kilimanjaro Airport is Tsh 49,000, and Dar es Salaam - Mwanza: Tsh 69,000 - including taxes.
