Kenyan airplanes have at long last been permitted to land in Tanzania as Tanzania lifts ban on Kenyan airlines, stopping the airspace quarrel between the two nations.
This is after the Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) reported that it had lifted the suspension that hit Kenyan carriers.
In an announcement, TCAA chief general Hamza Johari said the position was following up on proportional premise after its Kenyan partner, the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA), remembered Tanzania for an updated rundown of nations absolved from the 14-day required isolate upon appearance.
“In view of that and on a reciprocal basis, Tanzania has now lifted the suspension for all Kenyan Operators namely, Kenya Airways, Fly 540 Limited, Safarilink Aviation and AirKenya Express Limited,” TCAA director general Hamza Johari said.
Mr Johari said Kenyan transporters can resume of flights right away.
A month ago, Tanzania invalidated its endorsement for Kenya Airways to land in the nation with impact from August 1, 2020 after Kenya barred it from a rundown of around 111 nations whose travelers are permitted to enter its region without being isolated for 14 days.
A couple of days after the fact, Tanzania prohibited three more Kenyan transporters – AirKenya Express, Fly540 and Safarilink Aviation – from flying into the nation as it heaped pressure on Kenya to facilitate its Covid-19 travel limitations.
The blow for blow between the two nations was accelerated by various methodologies that they have taken to handle the Covid-19 pandemic.
While Kenya has positioned Tanzania on its red rundown, the last has consistently kept up that it is Covid-19 free.
