Precisionair is a private Tanzanian airline, which is a leader in providing scheduled, charter and scenic flight services out of its three centers of Arusha, Dar es Salaam and Bukoba. The company operates on the principle that quick, comfortable and reliable service is the best way to serve its customers. Through its customer-focused approach, many have become part of the Precisionair family.

Precision Air was established in 1993. It started as a private charter air transport company operating a five-seater piper Aztec aircraft. Its initial line of business mainly entailed providing connections to tourists visiting the rich natural attractions of Serengeti National Park, Ngoro Ngoro Crater, in northern Tanzania, the Zanzibar Island in the Indian Ocean and other parts of the country from Arusha town as its base.

Tanzania, situated on the eastern part of the continent of Africa just south of the equator, is a vast country endowed with varied natural splendor. Arusha - home of the airline situated at the midpoint between the Cape and Cairo, is also the entry point to many of Tanzania's world-renowned landmarks and national parks.

The vast nature of Tanzania coupled with a growing demand for air transport services as the country started to embrace a free market economy soon drove Precision Air into operating scheduled flights maintaining Arusha town as its base. First flights were scheduled using a seven-seater one engine Cessna 207, one seven seater Cessna 402, two eleven-seater Cessna 404s and the nineteen-seater LET 410 until mid 1990s when the airline introduced the bigger and more comfortable ATR 42 fleet.

Regionally, Precision Air flies to Nairobi and Mombasa in Kenya as well as to Blantyre and Lilongwe in Malawi in partnership with Kenya Airways and Air Malawi. In June last year Precision Air became the first airline ever to mount direct flights between Tanzania’s commercial capital, Dar es Salaam and Dubai. Plans are afoot to start operations to Pemba in Mozambique, Entebbe in Uganda as well as Hahaya in Comoro from July this year.

The airline issued its first e-ticket on March 27 this year to become the fifth airline in Africa to adopt this latest technology in the aviation industry. E-ticketing is a mandatory requirement for IATA member airlines to be implemented by December 2007.
