Tanzania lifts ban on Kenyan planes

The Tanzanian government has lifted the ban on Kenya Airplanes from operating within its airspace.

In a statement issued on Wednesday, the Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) said it has lifted the ban of all Kenyan operators including Kenya Airways, Fly 540 Limited, SafariLink Aviation, and AirKenya Express Limited.

The turnaround came after Kenya included Tanzania among the “safe flight list” ending the requirement to have all travelers landing in Kenya to enter a 14-day mandatory quarantine upon landing in the country.

“This is to confirm that the Government of the Republic of Kenya through a circular issued by the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) on September 15 removed the requirement of 14 days mandatory quarantine for all arriving passengers from the United Republic of Tanzania,” noted TCAA.

Tanzania banned Kenyan planes from its airspace after Kenya excluded the neighboring nation from its ‘safe-flight list’ upon the resumption of international air travel on August 1st.
