The Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) will recruit 15 air traffic controllers this month. It is part of a drive to address the authority's personnel requirements. TCAA public relations officer Abel Ngapemba told The Citizen in Dar es Salaam that the recruitment would partly be aimed at preparing the new employees to replace those nearing retirement.

After the recruitment, the successful candidates will undergo training for two and a half years.

The last such recruitment was undertaken in 2006.Tanzania has 95 air traffic management officers (ATMOs). According to Mr Ngapemba, the number is sufficient in the prevailing national aerospace requirements.

Most of them are based in Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar and Mwanza where the country's major airports are.
