HISTORY: AIR TANZANIA CORPORATION, is the flag carrier airline of Tanzania based in Dar es Salaam with its hub at Julius Nyerere International Airport. It was established as Air Tanzania Corporation in 1977 after the dissolution of East African Airways and has been a member of the African Airlines Association since its inception. In February 2002, the government began the process of privatising Air Tanzania Corporation and eight airlines submitted Expressions of Interest. By 19 September 2002, the bid deadline date, only SAA had submitted a bid. Kenya Airways and Nationwide Airlines had informed the government that they did not intend to submit bids. The Tanzanian government selected South African Airways (SAA) as the winning bidder. The new Air Tanzania airline was launched on 31 March 2003, offering direct flights between Johannesburg and Dar es Salaam, but also to Zanzibar and Kilimanjaro.
