Zanzibar Island - Dar es Salaam Flight schedule Click
What are the luggage restrictions?
We operate small aircraft with capacities that vary from 5 seats
to 19 seats, occasionally we send more that one aircraft depending
on the load of the flight.
Because of the nature of our aircraft we limit baggage allowance
to 15kgs per passenger, we also recommend
soft bags, large suitcase take up a lot of space in the
cargo bay and your bag may be left behind. If you have large bulky
or long articles such as surf boards, golf bags, fishing rods, diving
equipment, bicycles etc we may not be able to accommodate these
items on certain flights or aircraft, we would not like to tell
you this at the check-in counter, however if we know earlier or
at the time of booking we can advise you.
What about large passengers?
We work on approx averages of 90 kgs per adult male and 65 kgs per
adult female. If you feel that you may require 2 seats or over 120
kgs please advise us at the time of booking so that we can discreetly
accommodate you and advise you accordingly.
Does we guarantee my onwards international or other airline connection?
No but we will make every effort to leave on time, but this is not
guarantee nor do we take responsibility for the missed connection.
There are many factors that can relate to a missed connection such
as operational delays, airport congestion, VIP movement, weather,
aircraft snags (safety comes first). For your consolation we have
never had passengers miss their international connection.
