Tanzania has removed its threat to block Kenya Airways flights between Dar es Saalam and Nairobi.

Earlier this week Tanzania said it was withdrawing Kenya Airways’ right to fly between the two countries in response to Kenya’s refusal to allow its national carrier, Air Tanzania, to operate all-cargo flights between Nairobi and third countries.

However in an updated statement, the Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) said Kenya has granted permission for the cargo flights to resume, so it will allow Kenya Airways to continue its passenger flights.

It said: “Following this development, the aeronautical authorities of the United Republic of Tanzania hereby withdraw its decision of 15 January 2024 and therefore approval for Kenya Airways to operate Third and Fourth Freedom Traffic Rights between Nairobi and Dar es Salaam, is hereby restored with immediate effect.”
