Chairman’s Message

It is with great pride that we present Airco Holdings Co. Ltd (AHLI) which is operating at Mwanza Airport. The company has the most up to date equipment operated by skilled staff who have been in service with the former Mwanza Ground Handling Co. Ltd for nearly seventeen (17) years handling all types of aircraft at Mwanza Airport We have expanded our operations into the neighboring countries while putting safety as the major component in delivering our services. Our capabilities have always been our pride, the dedication shown by our employees have made our customers and stakeholders put more trust in our operations. Airco achieved its best when Mwanza Ground Handling Company Limited partnered with NAS of Kuwait to form NAS-DAR AIRCO now operating at JNIA. Last but not least, I would like to thank the Government and in particular the Ministry of Transport and Communications through the Tanzania Airport Authority for the effort made in the development of airport infrastructure in the country. These initiativites have created more business opportunities for aviation stakeholders, thus facilitating our growth.

Welcome to AIRCO Holdings.
