(Posted 07th September 2017)

Following the handover of the Buzwagi Airstrip to the Tanzania Airports Authority on the 05th of September has Precision Air launched their flights to the town of Kahama.
The airfield, about 9 kilometres from the town, was previously managed by Acacia Mining but the company handed back the facility to TAA after announcing the Buzwagi gold mine would be closed effective December this year.
Flights are connecting Dar es Salaam with Kahama every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday using an ATR 42-500 on the route.
The tarmacked runway is according to information sourced 1.288 metres long and at an elevation of 1.213 metres above sea level.
