Tanzania Tourist Board (TTB) and the Air Tanzania Company Ltd (ATCL) have signed a two-year Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) aimed at promoting travel and tourism in the country; just as the event also provided platform for the official launch of the ATCL in-flight magazine.

Addressing reporters at the MoU signing ceremony held at the TTB head office in Dar es salaam, Chairman of the Board of Directors of TTB Judge (Rtd) Thomas Mihayo said the Tanzania Tourist Board and Air Tanzania Company Ltd have agreed to cooperate in a number of issues including special training to be organized by TTB for ATCL staff including pilots and cabin crew on how to promote and market destination Tanzania to passengers aboard all its flights; providing ATCL the opportunity to showcase its services in the tourism exhibitions where TTB will be participating and organizing, among others.

“ATCL and TTB are interlinked institutions when it comes to the development of tourism,” said Judge Mihayo, adding that ATCL will include Destination Tanzania films in the inflight TV entertainment list.

Earlier in his statement, Chairman of the ATCL Board of Directors Eng. Emmanuel Korosso said that ATCL is fully committed to closely work with TTB in promoting destination Tanzania domestically and internationally since the expansion of fleet gives assurance to them that they will be flying to many international destinations in the near future.

The event was graced by some members of TTB Board of Directors, TTB Management Team and staff as well as senior staff from ATCL.
