Early Christmas for Tanzania as new DHC Dash8-400 now enroute

Original Post ATC News

The  brand new De Havilland DHC Dash 8-400 – previously known as the Bombardier Q400 – left Canada on a ferry flight to an initial stop at Reykjavik / Iceland.

The aircraft then proceeded on over Europe en-route to Tanzania, where the new plane is expected to arrive later today in Mwanza, where it will receive an official welcome, already bearing the Tanzanian registration of 5H-TCF.
This is the 4th Q400 aircraft to join the fleet of Air Tanzania.

Air Tanzania Corporation Limited, in short ATCL, upon the arrival of the new aircraft, will operate a fleet of four DHC8-400’s, two Airbus A220-300 – with two more on order – and two Boeing B787-8 with an order for a third such aircraft reportedly being under consideration.
