Precision Air eyeing Harare and Blantrye
Precision Air, Tanzania’s dominant airline, appears set to fly to Harare via Blantyre later this year, adding two more regional routes to their growing network. Similar to the flights recently launched to Lusaka, via Lubumbashi, the Harare connection will also be operated three times a week, using a B737-300.
The airline is on course to fly a million passengers per year for the first time in their history, and has additional brand new ATR 72-600 aircraft on order to expand both domestic as well as near regional routes.
Airline also hopes that ongoing work and construction at key airfields would be completed at a faster rate in order to open up more parts of the sprawling country.
Precision has also increased frequencies between Dar es Salaam, Arusha and Mwanza following the withdrawal of Air Tanzania from the route a few weeks ago, surely hoping that should another return of the financially stricken ATCL take place in the future, passengers will stay with Precision Air.
