Aviation pundits attribute the Tanzania’s Transport Minister’s lashing out at Swissport at diverting attention from a fire last week at the airport’s baggage storage, which prompted operations to be conducted from Terminal 1 instead of the usual Terminal 2 until the fire had been brought under control.


While no causes of the fire have been established yet, an electrical failure has not been ruled out either at this point, as installations in the terminal are decades old and have not been upgraded or modernized. The same sources also say that the airport authority has taken their eyes off the ball, i.e., is only concerned with the completion of the new terminal building and is spending less and less on the upkeep of the present international terminal. Sources in Dar es Salaam claim it is a political oversight failure on the side of the Transport Ministry, hence the possible attempt to divert attention to an innocent victim.
