AirTreks Airline Spotlight: Tanzania’s Precision Air

The Precision Air ATR 42-500 in action

The Precision Air ATR 42-500

As a huge fan of the underdog, I’m enamored by what Precision Air has done in their 12 years of operations. It went from a ragtag fleet of crop duster planes to being the largest airline in Tanzania and the first in the country to pass the IATA Operational Safety Audit, which may not seem like much but considering the fact that 19 of the 27 airlines on the European Commision’s Airline Blacklist are based in Africa, it says a lot.

Precision Air, a subsidiary of Air Kenya, serves nine cities in Tanzania you might not otherwise have been able to get to – Shinyanga, anyone? – including a coveted non-stop from Kilimanjaro to Zanzibar. They also have regular flights to Nairobi and Johannesburg and a non-stop from their Dar es Salaam hub to Entebbe, Uganda. On a continent not known for its discounted fares, including a Precision Air flight on your AirTreks itinerary may be your answer; we have great negotiated rates you won’t see other places, especially searching on your own.

As an added bonus, their “high-wing” configurations give every window seat a bird’s eye view of Mother Africa below.

Here’s a 360° look inside the cabin of one of their shiny new ATR planes:

And their really good-looking staff.

If you want a jaunt around the beautiful country of Tanzania and wish to sample Precision, ask your Travel Consultant and add a flight to your itinerary.
