Tanzanian regional airline Precision air plans to further support tourist connections in the country.
Precision Air currently operates 12 flights a day to Kilimanjaro, Arusha and Zanzibar while flying to Nairobi 6 times a day from both Dar es Salaam and Kilimanjaro, with all flights aiming at connecting tourists to the tourist attractions in the northern circuit and the beautiful beaches of Zanzibar.
On the planned additional flights Precision Air is planning to add one flight to Seronera from 4 flights a week to five flights a week. Current Precision Air operates to Seronera every Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. The new planned flight will operate on Friday effective from October.
On the other hand, Precision Air is also planning to add two flights between Kilimanjaro and Nairobi. The airline is currently operating three daily flights between Kilimanjaro and Nairobi and it is planning to increase to five flights a day in the winter schedule beginning in October.
Precision Air’s Marketing and Corporate Affairs Manager, Mr. Hillary Mremi, said Precision Air understands the importance of having reliable air transport for the growth of tourism in Tanzania, and that Precision Air is prepared to support government efforts to grow tourism by facilitating tourist movements.
“As Tanzanian airline we have an obligation to support economic growth of this country. Tourism contributes about 17.5% of Tanznaia’s GDP, and there is still big potential for this figure to grow, and we can achieve that by making our country and tourist attractions accessible. As Precision Air we will continue to support the efforts by providing reliable air transport. “
