Precision Air doubles Mwanza - Nairobi flights

From Wolfgang's East Africa tourism report

Not soon after launching their flights between Mwanza, located on the shores of Lake Victoria and Nairobi, operating four flights per week, Precision Air announced that they will double that number shortly. Precision is Tanzania’s premier airline, privately owned between Tanzanian citizen shareholders and Kenya Airways, and now operates the largest fleet of aircraft in the country. They were recently re-certified by CASSOA (see related column item) and are fully compliant with IATA’s e-ticketing directives and its operational safety audits IOSA.

The added flights now give travelers daily options to fly to the eastern part of Tanzania and either do some fishing or enter the Grumeti sector of the Serengeti for their safari, avoiding an otherwise much longer journey via Arusha. In turn, the Mwanza business community can now fly to Nairobi for business on a daily basis, nonstop, compared to requiring connecting flights through Kilimanjaro International Airport.
