Flying into one of Tanzania’s three international airports – Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro (situated between Arusha and Moshi), and Zanzibar, near Stone Town is the fastest and most expedient way to enter the country. All three offer world class service and a warm welcome to the country. Recent security upgrades now also make travelling even safer than before.
At the time of writing, international airlines that fly to Dar es Salaam include Air India, British Airways, Egypt Air, Ethiopian Airlines, Gulf Air, Kenya Airways, South African Airways and KLM. Other international air carriers fly to Nairobi, where there are daily connections to Arusha, Dar es Salaam and Zanzibar.
There is a departure tax of US$30 (US$25 from Zanzibar) on all international flights leaving Tanzanian airports but is usually included in the price of the ticket.
