Julius Nyerere Airport ready for world’s largest aircraft?


anzania, May 1 – Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA) was handed a boost in the aviation sector when the infrastructure hosted an Emirates Airline craft early last week. The unmitigated trip was caused by bad weather experience in Mauritius, being compelled to land in the East African nation. It was a rather exciting gesture for the airport that proved its capacity to hold world-class aircraft.

Wide-body jet airliner, Airbus 380, which is arguably world’s largest passenger airline made a stop in Tanzania, removing any doubts of the country’s infrastructure to handle such airlines. The aviation industry in Tanzania, like other countries in Africa continue to modify policies to see the growth of the industry and make it reach the international standards.

Aviation has a pivotal role in many countries, deriving revenue from tours and travels from business personnel and tourists on a daily basis. It is a fast form of transport connecting cities and towns, bringing people closer to their destinations with effectiveness and efficiency.

Perishable goods use the transport system for their movement from one place to another bringing foreign revenue to the government. A number of policies have been reviewed to boost industry and trade among African countries and ease the state of doing business.

Tanzania can wok out on measures of improving its infrastructure having been tested by the impromptu visit of the largest aircraft, proving that the country has notched international standards and can only but make necessary improvements to make their services better.

One aspect is the capacity to meet the fuel needs of large airlines that will undoubtedly see the number of airliners increasing. The engines require services at every stop, just to ensure everything is well. Should the country look into oil market, having an abundance to fuel the craft, they could benefit hugely from the stops of airliners.
