Airport Service Tax
The Tanzanian Government has mandated an airport service tax for all passengers embarking on a flight from a Government airstrip; that is most tarmac airstrips in Tanzania, except a few privately owned ones and bush airstrips in national parks and game reserves.

Safety Fee
The Tanzanian Civil Aviation Authority (TCAA) has also been authorized by the Government to collect a safety fee which goes to cover the costs of air traffic control and managing the airspace.

Taxes in Coastal tickets
The payable amount of taxes is calculated and added to the cost of the ticket automatically every time a ticket is issued. That means that, should any amendment occur to a confirmed booking, the value of the taxes could change depending on factors beyond the control of Coastal.
Please note that taxes may also be subject to currency fluctuation.

Charged amounts
The applicable taxes currently sum up as follows:

Domestic flights
• USD 13 per person out of government airstrips
• USD 5 per person out of private and bush airstrips

International flights from Tanzania
• USD 57 per person

International flights to Tanzania
• from Kigali (RW): USD 47 per person
• from Nairobi NBO (KE): USD 72 per person

Please note that the above amounts include a small 2 USD increase, effective from the 1st of June 2017, to compensate the introduction of VAT on some aviation charges, by which we were also affected.
