    Tanzania has registered an increase in tourists this year after it allowed more international airlines to land at Kilimanjaro International Airport—serving the country’s most famous northern tourism circuit.


    Tour operators in Arusha, the country’s leading tourism city say they have been receiving more foreign tourists over the past two months and they say they have been experiencing problems in handling the unprecedented situation.


    Tour operators have been obliged to hire additional transport services from other regions and from neoghbouring Kenya to meet the growing needs to the famous tourist attractions of Ngorongoro Crater, Serengeti National Park and Africa’s highest Mountain, The Kilimanjaro.


    Besides The Netherlands’ KLM, which was the only airline flying to Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA), several others including Emirates, Precision, Kenya and Ethiopian have started flights to the airport a couple of months ago.


    More airlines are flying to KIA for two reasons. One is their search for expanded markets in the region, particularly in the areas of tourism, according to Tanzania Tourist Board managing director Aloyce Nzuki.


    Nzuki, who confirmed that Tanzania will most likely register more international visitors this year, said more airlines are using KIA because of the ongoing al Shabaab activities in Kenya.


    He said the increase in number of airlines was bringing in more visitors from various parts of the world because of the airlines’ extended worldwide network.


    Tourism makes a very substantial contribution to Tanzania’s GDP.


    In 2010, Tanzania received about 1 million foreign visitors earning close to USD1m.

    Carelessness and laziness of Tanzanian journalists: 1 million tourists bringing in 1 million dollars?

    Hii ni afadhali maana itasaidia kujenga hiyo miji ya Moshi na Arusha. Dar imeshakuwa kuwa ni vurugu tupu.

    You mean each visitor brings only a dollar to our economy?

    Hii article haijakaa sawa and I am surprised The Guardian wameandika makosa ya wazi kabisa. Qartar ndio wamenza kwenda KIA na sio Emirates, pia Ethiopian, KQ na Precision hawa wote wamekuwa wanaenda KIA kwa miaka!
