PRECISION AIR NAMED ‘BEST DOMESTIC AIRLINE’ BY TASOTA
(Posted 20th September 2013)
Precision Air was voted by the Tanzania Society of Travel Agents as Tanzania’s ‘Best Domestic Scheduled Airline’, recognizing the carrier’s ongoing efforts to widen their domestic network and connecting Tanzanians from remote parts of the country with Dar es Salaam and other urban centres, as long as there is a suitable airfield available where ATR aircraft can land.
This is the fourth time Precision Air scoops this prestigious award after 2004, 2008 and 2011 and the airline’s commercial director Patrick Ndekana, according to a media release received from TASOTA, said: ‘We are proud and honored to continuously be named Best Domestic Scheduled Airline in the country as a testimony to Precision Air being The Airline of Choice in the country and it’s great to know Tanzanians agree’.
The TASOTA chairperson Moustafa Khataw was quoted to have said in his response: ‘We have witnessed an increase in flight frequency, new airlines, more hotels opening up in many parts of the country which is a good indicator of economic growth and to see Precision Air continue to maintain its winning position year after year truly puts the Airline in a class by itself’.
With a renewed focus by Precision Air on their domestic operations, after dropping unprofitable international routes, where they can use their strength as a turboprop operator able to fly into the more remote locations across Tanzania – the TCAA and TAA have both in recent years embarked on an aggressive investment programme to refurbish and upgrade secondary and tertiary airports, aerodromes and airfields with the aim to easing transportation problems caused by long and often arduous road journeys, at times made worse by adverse weather conditions.
