Arusha Municipal Airport resumes full operations

Precision Air, Tanzanias leading airline, has resumed scheduled operations to the Arusha Municipal Airport earlier this week, it was confirmed in an overnight communication from the Tanzanias safari capital of Arusha.
Precision will for the time being operate 23 flights per week between Dar es Salaam and Arusha, using their ATR 72 and ATR 42 aircraft on the new route.
Arusha is the 9th domestic destination for Precision Air, which flies already between Dar es Salaam, Zanzibar, Mtwara, Kilimanjaro, Mwanza, Bukoba, Musoma and Kigoma.
A number of other airlines, mainly operating tourist charters to the Northern circuit national parks of Manyara, Ngorongoro and the Serengeti, are also reportedly switching their operations from the distant Kilimanjaro International to the Arusha Municipal Airport, as it is more convenient and according to a regular source finally stops wasting everyones time and money driving to and from JRO.
It could not be established though if customs and immigration facilities are available at the Arusha field to facilitate traffic from within the East African Community neighbours, or if those flights will still have to go to Kilimanjaro International for entry and exit clearances.
