New Board Chairman appointed for Kilimanjaro Airports Development Company (KADCO).


President John Magufuli has just overhauled the Board of Directors in charge of managing the Kilimanjaro Airports Development Company (KADCO), the public firm responsible for handling the Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA).
According to an official dispatch signed on Monday by the Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Works, Transport and Communications, Dr Leonard M. Chamuhiro, the directive to that effect came through the Minister in charge of the portfolio, Prof Makame Mbarawa, who has appointed, Mr Gregory George Teu the new KADCO Board Chairman.
"The new appointment is in accordance with the 'Public Corporation Act Cap 257 R.E. 2002/ sect 9(1) and (2)' and therefore Mr Teu's recruitment takes immediate effect," reads part of the statement from the Permanent Secretary, Dr Chamuhiro sent on 16th of October 2017.
Under the changes, Mr Gregory George Teu (66) replaces Ambassador Hassan Gumbo Kibelloh, who headed the former Board of Directors at KADCO. In turn, the Minister for Works, Transport and Communications, Prof Mbarawa has revoked the appointment of Mr Suleiman Suleiman who used to serve in the dismissed board panel.
The Kilimanjaro Airports Development Company (KADCO) manages the Kilimanjaro International Airport (KIA), which is the country's second largest and second busiest terminal after Julius Kambarage Nyerere International Airport (JKNIA) of Dar-es-salaam.
The Kilimanjaro International Airport, dubbed the 'safest' terminal in East Africa, is strategically located about halfway between Arusha and Kilimanjaro regions and since these are the main tourist portals in the north, KIA with annual passenger flow of 600,000 travellers and handling more than 16 airlines, the terminal remains Tanzania's major tourists' landing spot.
Kilimanjaro International Airport has direct flight connections to Europe, the Middle East and several destinations on the African continent. Some of the international airlines using the airport are KLM, Edelweiss Air, Condor Air, Turkish Airline, Qatar, Ethiopian, Kenya Airways, Rwandair, Fastjet and Precision Air.

In 2013, Kilimanjaro Airport was declared overall winner of the 'Routes Africa Airport Marketing Award,' which is highly regarded as the most prestigious awards in the industry as they are voted for and judged by the airline industry.
