The Tanzanian government has reached an agreement with Boeing (BOE, Washington National) for the purchase of four aircraft including one B787-8, one B767-300F, and two B737 MAX for use by Air Tanzania (TC, Dar es Salaam). The announcement, made during the 2021 Dubai Air Show, did not disclose delivery details although as with the rest of Air Tanzania's fleet, the aircraft will likely be acquired via TGF - Tanzania Government Flight which will then lease them to the airline.

"Our flagship B787 Dreamliner is popular with our passengers, providing unrivalled in-flight comfort and ultra-efficiency for our long-haul growth," said Air Tanzania CEO Ladislaus Matindi." Adding to our 787 fleet, the introduction of the B737 MAX and B767 Freighter will give Air Tanzania exceptional capability and flexibility to meet passenger and cargo demand within Africa and beyond."

The move follows the government of Samia Suluhu Hassan's decision to continue funding the loss-making state-owned carrier via a TZS450 billion shilling (USD194 million) disbursement announced earlier this year.

The ch-aviation fleets advanced module shows Air Tanzania's fleet currently consists of four A220-300s, two B787-8s, one DHC-8-Q300, five DHC-8-Q400s, one F28-3000, and one Fokker 50.
