DAR ES SALAAM, TANZANIA-A privately owned air cargo and passenger service operator in the Tanzanian skies, Community Airlines, which suspended its services a few months ago, will next month start domestic flights in Tanzania.

The airline was started early this year and its operations were suspended in August on reasons that were not made public.

The airline nicknamed “Budget Airline” due to its cheaper fares was 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 from Dodoma, a senior official with the airlines who preferred anonymity said the company had hired an aircraft that would take up the routes between Mwanza, Musoma, Bukoba, Shinyanga and Kigoma towns.
