British Airways has discontinued its flights to Tanzania citing the failure of the service to “operate profitably.” The BA flights between London Heathrow and the Tanzanian capital Dar es Salaam had been operating for nearly forty years.
The gap left by BA’s cancellation is expected to be filled by Dubai-based Emirates, which is expanding its seating capacity by 1,400 seats per week on flights between Dubai and Dar es Salaam by introducing Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on the route to replace the existing smaller Airbus A340s.
British Airways will add extra capacity on its flights to neighboring Kenya (Nairobi) with the introduction of Boeing 777-200 on the route in May instead of the currently used Boeing 767 aircraft.
