Tanzania Tour Operators Call for Direct Flight To Beijing

Tanzanian tour operators called on the government to strengthen its national flag carrier Air Tanzania and introduce direct flight between Dar es Salaam and China’s capital Beijing.

The idea would help Tanzania increase number of tourists visiting the country.  China and Japan is potential new markets for tourism, but Tanzania has not yet created better infrastructure to serve such opportunity.

The number of tourists who visited Tanzania last year hit over one million and put the East African country among leading destinations in Africa.
