Julius Nyerere International Airport ((IATA: DAR, ICAO: HTDA), is the principal airport serving Dar es Salaam, the largest city in Tanzania. The airport is named after the first Tanzanian President, Mwalimu Julius K. Nyerere.

History

The German colonial Government built the first airport in Tanganyika at Kurasini in Temeke District in 1918. It was called Mkeja Airport.

Another airport known as Dar es Salaam Airport, Terminal I, was built at Ukonga area, as the former could not meet the demands. Therefore the Government of Tanzania extended the airport to Terminal II in 1979. It was inaugurated by Julius Nyerere in October 1984.

In October 2005, Dar es Salaam International Airport (DIA) was renamed Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere International Airport.

A total of 9,501,265 passengers used the airport from 1980 to 2004; averaging 2,770 passengers per day.

On November 1, 2006 the Government of Tanzania decided to rename the airport once again, now becoming Julius Nyerere International Airport (JNIA).

JNIA today

In 2006, the airport served 1,249,419 passengers
