Air Tanzania still operate one A320-200 and two DHC-8-300, not sure about the three B737-200.
Precision Air has 4 ATR42, 4 ATR72 (one is a new -500 series) and a single B737-300.
And than there is Regional Air Services (Partner of Airkenya) with some DHC-6 Twin Otter and now with a single DHC-7.
Unfortunately Zanair has stopped it's operation with the Fokker F28 after Community Airlines has started it's flights with B737-200 and B737-800 [remark: Community Airlines has also now halted its flights because the have no aircraft at the moment]. Zanair only operate smaller planes like the Let410.
I'm not sure if Zara Airways (with B737-200) is also from Tanzania.

I lived in Tanzania from 1974-78 with my parents. I was 4yrs old at the time. I have some amazing memories of flying with them as a child! I vividly remember being stranded in Zanzibar for 2days due to tech problems. When an a/c finally arrived it was one of their F-27s and we were given 4 seats between 8 of us!!!
Our parents got the seats, us kids sat on the floor!!
Now... thta was FUN flying! Long live Air Tanzania..... the best livery EVER!!!

Update: Not looking so good!
Quote: Three out of five Air Tanzania Company's Limited (ATCL) planes have been grounded due to major technical faults, a factor which has disrupted its domestic schedules. Sources within ATCL's told the 'Daily News' yesterday that the planes have been grounded at different airports in the country.
Quote: A Boeing 737 is stuck at Mwanza Airport and one of the two Dash 8 Q300 aircraft is grounded at Zanzibar International Airport, while the other at the Mwalimu Julius Nyerere International Airport in Dar es Salaam.
