|MINISTER KAMWELWE CONTENTED BY TCAA ACHIEVEMENTS|
Significant changes in terms of infrastructure development and performance improvement achieved by Tanzania Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) has impressed the Minister for Works, Transport and Communication, Hon.Eng. Isack Kamwelwe(MP). Hon.Kamwelwe made the remarks while speaking to TCAA staff during his official tour on February 16, 2019.
Hon.Kamwelwe added that since 2016 todate it is only three years, yet TCAA through the leadership of Director General Hamza S. Johari using similar staff, has transformed tremendously and increased its revenue from 36 Billion shillings collected in 2015/2016 to 67.1 Billion Shillings collected in 2017/2018.
He urged TCAA staff to maintain similar sprit as he believed in 10 years’ time; TCAA will achieve more development for the benefit of the entire economy.
Hon.Kamwelwe also insisted on TCAA in collaborating with other stakeholders to start working on regulating jet fuel as well as monitoring tariffs of ground handling services.
He also added that come May 2019 Terminal three will be operationalized; therefore, there will be a huge need to have more staff. Civil Aviation Training Centre (CATC) should be in full capacity to overcome that by having more classes. Hon Minister is going to offer a piece of land which was previously owned by Tanzania Airports Authority (TAA) for CATC.
On his tour Hon.Kamwelwe visited TCAA Head Quarters, CATC and Radar site project at Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA). He was received by TCAA Management and staff led by the Director General Hamza Johari.
