Tanzania will soon be fully equipped to monitor its own airspace following the official launch of a project that involves among others, installation of civil radar systems at the airports in Dar es Salaam, Kilimanjaro, Mwanza and Mbeya, it has been learnt.

Once completed, the 67.3bn/- project, which was launched by President Dr. John Magufuli in Dar es Salaam recently, will save Tanzania 1.2bn/- being paid to Kenya annually for surveillance of 75 percent of the airspace that is beyond the reach of the current radar.  

“Installation of the radars augers well with our commitment to build a strong economy that caters for the well-being of our people,” said Dr. Magufuli, adding that having a secure airspace would encourage more international flights and thereby boost tourism.  

The President commended Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) for keeping an eye on airspace safety as per the International Civil Aviation Organisation standards, saying   he was pleased to learn that TCAA had invested in its manpower by sending some of its staff abroad to learn how to operate the new radar systems.

TCAA Director General, Mr Hamza Johari, said the systems, which are expected to be operational in May 2019 with each having capacity to monitor eight planes, would greatly enhance the aviation industry in the country.
