Precision Air launches new Zambia and DRC routes

(Image source: Precision Air)Tanzania’s private airline, Precision Air, has launched flights into Lusaka, Zambia and Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo

The company is offering direct flights from Dar es Salaam that take less than two hours.

The airline’s commercial director, Patrick Ndekana, said in a statement that Precision Air aims to remove the limitations that have affected the Zambian market in relation to travelling to and from Tanzania.

The airline will operate three times a week with a new Boeing 737 which it recently acquired from Singapore.

“Precision Air will be providing new services to Lusaka and Lubambashi with operations every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday," said Ndekana. "The addition of these two routes officially brings our list to 17 destinations."

The flights will operate from Dar es Salaam connecting via Lubumbashi, then to Lusaka with the aim of capturing potential traffic on the way back to Dar es Salaam.

The airline has voiced its commitment to eliminating the difficulty passengers face travelling between Zambia and Tanzania.

Until now, passengers have had to travel for more than nine hours through South Africa or Nairobi to get to Lusaka or Dar es Salaam due to the lack of convenient and direct flights.
