Tanzania’s new acquisition Air Tanzania Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner has made its first flight today.

Passengers had queued as early as 4am today to check in something that is unusual during other days. At average a customer takes about 20 minutes to check in.

The aircraft left for Kilimanjaro at 6:38 8 minutes late than its expected time but what was inside the plane was amazing. Passengers were treated to politeness, gentleness and most importantly with a smile.

On board, the Dreamliner had passengers from different social status including politicians and government heads.

Among the politicians and government heads was Mr Humphrey Polepole who is the Ideology and Publicity Secretary of Chama cha Mapinduzi, Mr. Hassan Abbas who serves as the director of Tanzania Information Services and Medical Stores Department Director General Lauren Bwanakunu among others.

Plans are currently underway to revive Air Tanzania Company Limited (ATCL) to purchase three other Dreamliner’s as this is the fourth in the country.

The government has so far purchased three Bombardier‘s Q400 which have a capacity of carrying 76 passengers.
