Boeing has confirmed the delivery of the Rolls-Royce Trent 1000-powered 787-8 (above).

Air Tanzania’s  first Boeing 787 has arrived in the east African carrier’s base, after it took delivery of the twinjet.


The airframer lists the Tanzanian government, rather than the airline, as having ordered the aircraft (5H-TCG) in December 2016.

It landed at Dar es Salaam on 8 July following a ferry flight from Seattle.

Air Tanzania is also a customer of the Bombardier CS300 – now under Airbus control – and operates a small fleet of regional turboprops.
