Bombardier Commercial Aircraft and Tanzanian government yesterday announced a firm order for two CS300 jetliners and one Q400 turboprop aircraft.
The aircraft will be leased to and operated by Air Tanzania (The Wings of the Kilimanjaro) based in Dar es Salaam.
Based on the list prices of the CS300 and Q400 aircraft, the combined value of the purchase agreements is approximately $200 million US.
Like the two Q400 turboprop aircraft delivered to the TGFA for lease and operation by Air Tanzania in September 2016, the third announced yesterday will have an all-economy 76-seat cabin.
The two CS300 airliners will be configured in a dual-class layout, and will be equipped with WiFi internet and in-flight entertainment.
