Julius Nyerere International Airport, named after Tanzania’s first president and founding father is a major international airport located in Dar es Salaam, the country’s busiest city and business hub. Tanzania Airports Authority (TAA) operates and maintains 58 government-owned airports, including Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA). With around 6 million passengers per year, it is Tanzania’s largest and busiest international airport.

Julius Nyerere International Airport (IATA: DAR, ICAO: HTDA) serves Dar es Salaam, Tanzania’s capital and largest city. It is located 12 kilometers (7.5 miles) southwest of the city center. There are flights to Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Middle East from this airport. It is named after the country’s first president, Julius Nyerere.

“Dar es Salaam International Airport” (DIA) was renamed “Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere International Airport” (Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere International Airport) in October 2005, then “Julius Nyerere International Airport” on November 1, 2006.

From 1980 to 2004, the airport served a total of 9,501,265 passengers, an average of 2,770 people per day.

The Tanzania Airports Authority and BAM International of the Netherlands signed a TSH 275 billion deal in April 2013 for the building of the first phase of Terminal III, which would have a capacity of 3.5 million passengers per year. The second phase, for US$110 million, was also granted to BAM in November 2015 and will offer capacity for an extra 2.5 million passengers per year. Terminal II is scheduled to be dedicated completely to domestic travelers after Terminal III is completed.

A rail shuttle link from the airport to the city is being considered, and train carriages have already been purchased for this purpose (2014).

Notes: 1: Some KLM inbound/outbound flights from Amsterdam to Dar es Salaam include a stop in Kilimanjaro, while others include a stop in Zanzibar (from December 10, 2020). The airline, on the other hand, does not have traffic rights to transport people between Kilimanjaro/Zanzibar and Dar es Salaam.
