AIR Tanzania Company Limited (ATCL) has launched a scheme that allows would-be-passengers to pay in instalments prior to their flight date.
The scheme, dubbed Kibubu, requires passengers to book their flights and pay their first instalment in cash at ATCL offices and be provided with a payment receipt (Electronic Miscellaneous Document -EMD).
The passenger, thus, plans safari and start paying in instalment and complete the payments before the journey date and will be given his/her tickets. The scheme wants to increase the number of passengers.
ATCL’s Head of Corporate Communication, Mr Josephat Kagirwa said the campaign aimed at providing opportunities for citizens to use ATCL services at all times.
“We also plan to collaborate with the banks and financial institutions to receive payments,” he said.
