Tanzania lifts ban on Kenyan airlines

Tanzania has lifted the ban against Kenyan airlines barely a day after Kenya included Tanzanians in the list of states whose nationals can fly in without being quarantined.

The two East African nations have been embroiled in a direct diplomatic tiff that escalated this year, and at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic. On Tuesday, Nairobi sent in a statement including Tanzania into the cohort of nations exempted from mandatory quarantine upon arrival at Kenyan airports.

The Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) referenced Kenya’s decision to exempt it from the 14-day mandatory quarantine and qualified the ban lift as an act of goodwill reciprocity.
