(Posted 15th June 2017)
Tanzania’s leading airline Precision Air Services Plc, announced the launch of scheduled flights into the Serengeti National Park through the Seronera air strip effective from 1st October 2017.
The announcement came shortly after the airline confirmed its expected return to Uganda in July 2017
Precision Air has been operating charter flights into Seronera until now and the announcement will make it the first and the only IATA member airline to operate scheduled flights to Serengeti National Park.
Precision Air’s Commercial Director Mr.Robert Owusu said Serengeti National Park is among the seven wonders of the world and it is a beautiful place that everyone should visit. Precision Air will operate four flights a week between Dar es Salaam-Seronera and Zanzibar
“With our flights to Seronera, we are going to transform the whole Safari experience, now tourist can fly direct to Serengeti and spend more time in the park unlike before where they had to drive for hours to and from Serengeti. We will operate every Monday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Passenger can make their bookings through our website or their travel agents or tour operators. We believe through these flights more tourist will visit Serengeti National Park. Our commitment is to provide reliable services and contribute to the development of tourism in the country‘.
Precision Air was established in 1993 as a private air charter company operating a five-seater Piper Aztec aircraft. Its initial line of business moved very quickly from crop spraying to providing connections to tourists visiting the rich natural attractions of Serengeti National Park, Ngorongoro Crater, in northern Tanzania, Zanzibar in the Indian Ocean and other parts of the country.
The airline has grown to become the only publicly quoted airline in Tanzania operating from their hub in Dar es Salaam.
Precision Air flies to Arusha, Bukoba, Kigoma, Kilimanjaro, Musoma, Mtwara, Mwanza, Tabora, Zanzibar and Nairobi and from July onwards also to Entebbe in Uganda.
