How to get through airport security fast when traveling to Dar es Salaam

If you like the idea of spending more time at the airport restaurants and less time moving through security on your way to Dar es Salaam, follow these useful tips:

  • Ensure your boarding pass and travel ID are not hard to access. You'll be required to show them straightaway.
  • You'll need to pause the music for a short while. Headphones need to be taken off and placed in a bin for X-raying. The same applies to items such as belts and heavy jackets.
  • Everyday electronics such as laptops, phones and cameras are always put through the X-ray machine separately. Be sure to have them within easy reach.
  • When it comes to traveling with gels and liquids, every passenger is allowed a quart-sized clear zip-lock bag to store containers no bigger than 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters).
  • Think about your choice of footwear. Slippers are great because they're a cinch to remove when you're doing the airport security checks. Try wearing a pair on your next flight!
  • Some countries have strict biosecurity laws. Consider where you're headed to and whether or not you can fly with unpackaged foods.

Flights To Dar es Salaam

Although it ceded capital status to Dodoma in 1996, the important port city of Dar es Salaam remains the largest city in Tanzania and an important center of trade, culture, and politics. This dynamic city boasts everything from an eclectic architectural melange to beautiful beaches to bustling markets, and is an exciting stop on any East African adventure. Flights to Dar es Salaam land at Julius Nyerere International Airport (DAR), so book your tickets here.

Transportation from DAR

You can find several hotels located in the close vicinity of DAR, or travel into the city to find a hotel in Dar es Salaam. Travelers landing on Dar es Salaam flights will be greeted by a swarm of taxis just outside the doors of the terminal. Be sure to agree on a fare before getting into the cab. There is usually a set rate in dollars for non-residents, but if you pay in Tanzanian shillings, you might be able to get a better deal. Many hotels offer airport transfer upon request and will send a driver to greet you with a sign. If you're easily overwhelmed or hate to haggle, this is probably your best course of action. You can also catch a ride into town on one of the city buses, which stop less than half a mile away from the terminal entrance. Once you're in town, there are so many sights to see and places to explore. Visit the open air Village Museum, where you can experience traditional Tanzanian life and watch a tribal dance. If you're hankering for an outdoor adventure, ride out to nearby Mbudya Island for some quality snorkeling and beach-lounging.
