Air Tanzania Corporation (ATC), the Tanzanian flag carrier was established in March 1977 after the collapse of the East African Airways.

Since its establishment in 1977, the Government of Tanzania (GoT) has undertaken a number of structural changes of ATC with the view of enhancing its performance. Notably in 2002, ATC was dissolved by an Act of Parliament. Subsequently Air Tanzania Company Limited (ATCL) was established following the privatization of the defunct ATC on 02nd December 2002. The privatization was in the form of a Shareholders Agreement between South African Airways (Proprietary) Limited (SAA) and the Government of Tanzania, in which SAA acquired 49% stake in the new airline and became strategic equity partner of the GoT which held a 51% stake in the company.

The partnership did not perform to the expectations of the government of Tanzania (GoT) as a result on 31st August 2006, an agreement was reached to dissolve the Shareholders Agreement between SAA and Government of Tanzania. Therefore, the Government of Tanzania became the sole shareholder and from 2016, the Government of Tanzania, decided to revamp the airline by purchasing new modern aircrafts, appointing the new board of directors and management team who recruited professionals and well skilled people
