Three more Kenyan airlines ban from landing in Tanzania

Three more Kenyan airlines have been banned from landing in Tanzania due to skyrocketing rise in  Coronavirus (Covid-19) in the country. 

The Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) nullified the approval granted to Fly 540, Air Kenya Express and Safarilink Aviation.

The airlines operate daily flights to the tourist destinations of Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar.

"The basis of the decision to nullify our aproval for the three Kenyan airlines is the ongoing dispute between the two countries," Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority director general general Hamza Johari is quoted as saying by the Citizen newspaper

Earlier, the national carrier Kenya Airways had been banned after Nairobi said passengers from Tanzania have to quarantine for 14 days when they arrive in the country.
