JNIA - Terminal Building II

The aerodrome was later expanded in the early 80s with additional infrastructure and facilities installed including a control tower, radar, meteorological services, runways, taxiways and air navigational aids, which increased its capacity to 1,500,000 passengers and 30,000 tons of cargo annually. In October 1984 a second and larger terminal was officially launched by the First President of Tanzania, the late Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere. In October 2005, "Dar es Salaam International Airport" was renamed "Mwalimu Julius Kambarage Nyerere International Airport" and on 1 November 2006, it was changed to "Julius Nyerere International Airport.” This part of the airport is solely for domestic flights.
