TWO out of the four planes the Air Tanzania Company Limited (ATCL) has ordered from Canada as part of its plans to serve more local and regional routes would be delivered next month, it was learnt yesterday.

The ATCL Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Mr David Mattaka, told the 'Sunday News' that the national flag carrier would receive two used Dash8Q 300 next month and two brand new Dash8 Q 400 before the end of next year, all paid for by the government.

 checkmark  Some proper competition for PW. Would a Q400 have the legs to do JNB direct? As much as I love the 732, the A320 would be a great addition too for competing with SA, KQ & ET.
