About Tropical Air

Tropical Air was an airline based in Zanzibar, Tanzania. Tropical Air was founded by Captain Omar Haji and the airline first began operations in 1999 when it had just 1 aircraft under its name, a Cessna Grand Caravan. The airline operated out of Abeid Amani Karume International Airport and flew to 7 destinations across Tanzania.

Tropical Air had a goal to become the undisputed leader in domestic routes and air charter services within Tanzania.



Previous to Tropical Air ceasing trade, the airline flew scheduled flights to 7 destinations around Tanzania. These destinations included Arusha, Dar es Salaam, Mafia Island, Mbeya, Mtwara, Pemba Island and Zanzibar.
