Tanzania's government will buy two new Airbus jets and one plane from Bombardier Inc as part of a fleet expansion plan for the national flag carrier, the president said on Thursday. (Fliegerfaust Note: Reuters do not knows the Q400 is no longer a "Bombardier" plane since it was totally sold to Longview Aircraft Company of Canada Ltd? Unless the one "Bombardier" plane in question is a CRJ)
President John Magufuli has personally taken charge of the revival of Tanzania's loss-making state carrier Air Tanzania Company Limited (ATCL), spending hundreds of millions of dollars purchasing eight new planes since 2016.
President Magufuli "has already issued instructions for the purchase of three additional planes (two Airbus jets and one Bombardier) to expand air services and improve tourism," the president's office said in a statement.
