Julius Nyerere International Airport ((IATA: DAR, ICAO: HTDA), is the principal airport serving Dar es Salaam, the largest city in Tanzania. The airport is named after the first Tanzanian President, Mwalimu Julius K. Nyerere
The German colonial Government built the first airport in Tanganyika at Kurasini in Temeke District in 1918. It was called Mkeja Airport.
Another airport known as Dar es Salaam Airport, Terminal I, was built at Ukonga area, as the former could not meet the demands. Therefore the Government of Tanzania extended the airport to Terminal II in 1979. It was inaugurated by Julius Nyerere in October 1984, www.taa.go.tz/
