Nadhani tutahitaji pia kuwa na reliable national airline ......
Nimesoma sehemu Treasury wamepewa hadi JULY waje na plan ya kuifufua ATCL. so it could be in the oofing.

I think the best course of action is to partner with one of Chinese airlines with zero presence in Africa. Since Chinese are very patriotic, such a combination will quickly help boost the airline with huge number of chinese travellers. they could start with weekly flights from China complemented by regional flights.

Ikipatikana cash inflow ya kueleweka na chinese partnership we can have AirTanzania back to glory. Wawaogope wazungu na airline za kiafrika, hela hawana, shida tupu, masharti ka waganga wa kienyeji.

Kuna wakati kulikuwa na public interest kutoka kwenye moja ya shirika kubwa sana la aviation china.

Tena tusiishie hapo tu, tunaweza kuwa-hook, kwa kuwaambia tutanunua Chinese made jets kwa ajili ya safari za ndani, china wanatafuta sana soko la ndeege zao, this way titakuwa tumewa-scratch their backs at the same time na wao wanapata opportunity ya ku-showcase copying/engineering skills zao.

AVIC niliona wamedeliver ndege Burundi, wamewahi kuwauzia Egypt ndege za kivita, pia tuna ndege za kutoka china kwenye jeshi letu.

Ikiwezekana we lobby waweke repaircenter,or whatever form ya knowledge transfer center TZ. in 20 years time tutavuna pindi china ikiwa superpower kamili. haya maboeing yana tutia hasara tu na expensive maintenance zake.

Sijui kwanini hawalioni hili pia. Yani nafasi ya kuwashirikisha wachina positively kwenye uchumi wetu ni kubwa sana,

Funding

The Netherlands Government has granted us €15 million for this project via its Facility for Infrastructure Development (ORIO) :| [The Citizen, February 2014 http://www.thecitizen.co.tz/Business/Holland-to-give-Sh33bn-for-KIA/-/1840414/2215348/-/beiha2/-/index.html]

The GoT will arrange the remaining €22 million via commercial financing. [The Guardian, March 2015 http://www.ippmedia.com/frontend/index.php?l=78411]

Kilichobaki ni kuweka miundombinu ya uhakika tu tuone kama +254 wataendelea kutuwekea usiku na hiyo Jommo Kenyata:cheers:
International connectivity grows by days in Tanzania. Before even expanded, the changes at KIA within the past 3 years:
1. Qatar Airways launched daily flights(via Dar es Salaam) to KIA in July 2012
2. KLM: in October 2012, KLM increases KIA flights from 7 to 9 per week
3. Turkish Airlines launched KIA flights in December 2012
4. Flydubai launched KIA flights in September 2014
5. Qatar Airways to launch non-stop flights to KIA, and from KIA to Zanzibar in July 1st 2015 for ease of access to tourist who want to enjoy both Bara Safari circuit & Zanzibar
6. Turkish Airways is working on launching Zanzibar flights; likely to be connected to their KIA flights.
Not to mention the usual KIA bound airlines, like Ethiopian Airlines, and Condor(Germany)

KIA experienced 24% passenger growth last year, and for the first time in history was projected to handle over 1 million passengers(http://www.gulfafricareview.com/09/07/2014/infrastructure/kilimanjaro-airport-rivals-dar-es-salaam-with-qatar-turkish-routes/); a far cry from 200K passengers it used to handle in 1990s.
All this accomplished without even the expansion/upgrade underway. By the time the upgrade is done(expected to be completed in 2017) JKIA would be virtually unnecessary for TZ-bound tourists, and only useful to tourists visiting both KE & TZ.
Using an airport or airline as a leverage against Tanzania in EAC is no longer an option. I hope TZ won't overvalue JKIA in negotiations as it's a weak bargaining chip against Tanzania nowadays; and getting weaker by day
