KIA joins flydubai East African Network

Dubai-based airline, flydubai, has increased the number of international airlines that continues to use Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA), after the airline launched the services between Dubai and Kilimanjaro on December 15th, 2017 with six flights a week, three of which are via a stop in the capital, Dar es Salaam and the other three via Zanzibar. 

The service to Kilimanjaro adds to the total number of flydubai’s destinations in Tanzania increase to three, along with Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.

Emirates will codeshare on this route and as part of the Emirates flydubai partnership, passengers will have greater choice for onward travel from Dubai to hundreds of destinations across the world.

Kilimanjaro International Airport, the gateway to Africa’s wildlife heritage, strategically situates within a close proximity of renowned tourist hot spots such as Mount Kilimanjaro, The Serengeti National park as well as the Ngorongoro conservation area which have all been designated as the winners among the seven natural wonders of Africa in 2013.

“The service between Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA) and Dubai is a valuable contribution to our network”, stated Eng. Christopher Mukoma, Acting Managing Director of Kilimanjaro Airports Development Company (KADCO). “With the flydubai flight KIA will be able to serve the new growing trader traffic market in an addition to the traditional tourist segment and is the first airline to provide direct air links from the UAE".
