PRECISION Air is set to increase its flights to three major business and tourist destinations of Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar and Mtwara.
The airline said in a statement from March 16, this year, Dar – Kilimanjaro flights would be increased to five times a day from the current four. The Kilimanjaro – Zanzibar flights would increase from two a day to three, the statement said, adding Mtwara would enjoy ten flights a week from seven flights a week operated earlier.
The increased flights to Mtwara follow the introduction of evening flights to and from Mtwara on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday, according to the statement.
Precision Air’s Group Managing Director and CEO Ms Sauda Rajab said Precision Air was responding to the increasing demand of air services in the domestic market.
“Our performance has been tremendously good in these routes, and since we are upholding our mission to develop and provide superior air transport services that exceed customer expectation, we decided to increase frequencies to meet our customers’ demand,” she added.
Meanwhile, Precision Air has also announced suspension of its operations between Dar es Salaam and Entebbe. Ms Sauda said that Precision Air gave consideration to the routes with high demand and decided to suspend Entebbe operations so as to accommodate the adjustments on Kilimanjaro, Zanzibar and Mtwara.
“Entebbe operations will be suspended temporarily effective from March 16, 2014, all our passengers who booked with us will be transferred to our code share partner Air Uganda or Kenya Airways, and those who will opt to cancel their flights, will be refunded immediately,” she said.
