Tanzania: Airports

There are over 40 different Airports located in Tanzania. Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR), the airport serving Dar es Salaam, is about 8 miles from the city, the journey being about 30 minutes. Taxi services are available and the larger hotels organize shuttle services. A car hire, post office, banking /currency exchange facilities, and restaurants are all available at this Airport.

Mt. Kilimanjaro Airport is the 2nd airport in Tanzania and in spite of its small size, the airport can accommodate planes as large as the Boeing 747. The airport is located about 30 minutes from Arusha, and about 45 min from Moshi. KLM airlines and British Airways are the only two companies that fly directly to Kilimanjaro. Included are all the modern amenities that larger airports have: restaurants, money/exchange banks, shopping areas, business class lounges as well as VIP.

As with every trip you take it is best to plan in advance. Depending on where you are going and what you have planned here is a list of all the airports in Tanzania.
