Tanzania officials said they were sending lawyers to investigate the seizure.

“We are working to ensure that the plane is released immediately,” Leonard Chamuriho, secretary of the Ministry of Works, Transport and Communication, told the Daily Nation in Kenya.

He said the plane was being held in response to an order by the Gauteng High Court in Johannesburg.

Air Tanzania alerted customers to the flight disruption in a Twitter post.

“Dear Customers, Due to unforeseeable circumstance, Air Tanzania profoundly regrets to inform you that we expect flight schedule adjustments. We sincerely apologize for all inconveniences this might cause to your travel plans,” the company said.

Air Tanzania began flying to Johannesburg in June, though the airline encountered what Managing Director Ladislaus Matindi described as a “miscommunication” resulting in airline officials being turned away at Oliver Tambo International Airport when the inaugural flight arrived.
