Airport Tours

Participant Rules and Requirements

Airports are an exciting and dynamic environment; however certain dangers do exist as it is in any other workplace environment. Dangers such as moving equipment, aircraft, tools, etc are ever-present in the airport environment.

The Julius Nyerere International Airport is more than happy to provide tours to the public, upon request, with the understanding that the following safety precautions will be strictly enforced and adhered to at all times. At any time during the tour of the airport facilities, airport representatives may discontinue the tour should any participant within the group disregard the following precautions, rules or direct instructions.
