Precision Air to go double daily from Mwanza to Nairobi


(Posted 04th July 2014)

Precision Air will return to Kigoma with three flights per week by middle of July, the airline announced yesterday in Dar es Salaam. Flights will operate out of Mwanza every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, offering convenient connections both ways to a number of domestic destinations as well as to Nairobi. The airline also confirmed that from beginning of August they will increase their flights between Mwanza and Nairobi to double daily, following sustained demand on the route.

On both routes will Precision Air use their ATR 42 and ATR 72 aircraft, depending on demand.

Only recently has Precision pulled out of Mbeya citing non availability of fuel which made operations financially difficult as the extra fuel load which needed to be carried out of Dar es Salaam restricted the sale of passenger seats due to weight restrictions. Close rival Fastjet has since then stepped into the gap with more flights to Mbeya, using their Airbus A319 on the route.
