Air Tanzania adds two Bombardier Q400 aircraft to its fleet
“As we look to expand operations and increase our route network across Tanzania and the African continent, the technologically advanced Q400 aircraft is a key component in our growth strategy,” said Leonard Chamuriho, Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Transport, Works and Communication, Tanzania.
“Its ability to operate at challenging airfields, combined with its fuel efficiency, excellent reliability and comfortable passenger amenities, make it a valuable addition to our fleet.”
“The Q400 aircraft is showcased very well in Africa where it has proven itself to be extremely efficient and continues to maintain strong market share in its class,” said Jean-Paul Boutibou, vice president, Sales - Middle East and Africa, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft.
The delivery of the two aircraft increases the fleet of Q Series turboprops in Africa to approximately 125 aircraft including 40 Q400 aircraft.
Designed as a modern, 21st-century turboprop, the Q400 aircraft is the most recent development in the Q Series family of aircraft. It provides unmatched performance, operational flexibility and passenger comfort.
In addition to the standard single-class configuration, Q400 aircraft are available with an optional dual-class interior for enhanced passenger comfort; in an optional extra-capacity configuration offering up to 90 seats for higher-density markets; and in a cargo-passenger combi configuration.
Thanks to its combination of turboprop attributes, jet-like features, industry-leading passenger experience and environmental footprint, the Q400 aircraft is exceptionally versatile and can be adapted to a variety of business models.
By offering a 30 percent reduction in fuel burn over the jets it often replaces, the Q400 aircraft radically reduces carbon emissions and increases cost efficiency.
Bombardier’s commercial aircraft presence in Africa includes a Regional Support Office (RSO) and spare parts depot, co-located in Johannesburg, South Africa as well as Authorized Service Facilities in South Africa and Ethiopia. Bombardier has recorded firm orders for a total of 565 Q400 aircraft.
