The landing charges for Tanzania registered aircraft have been progressively at variance with those of foreign aircraft due to the continued devaluation of the Tanzania shilling against the US Dollar.
The first phase which set charges for locally registered aircraft to 50% equivalent of the USD charge rate, was implemented on 1 September 2002.
The phase that followed, where landing charge rates would be equal to those applicable to foreign registered aircraft was implemented effective 1 September 2004.
