Precision Air, Tanzania’s largest airline, has taken delivery of an additional Boeing 737-300 in order to expand its fleet and grow its route network.

The additional Boeing 737-300 will allow the airline to launch two new routes, one to Zambia and one to the Democratic Republic of Congo. Starting on April 20,  Precision Air will fly to Lusaka in Zambia and to Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo three times weekly, on Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays.


Precision Air’s latest Boeing 737-300 will join an existing fleet  of 11 aircraft: two Boeing 737-300s, five ATR 72-500s and four ATR 42s (two -300s and two -500s). The carrier also has four ATR 42-600s and one ATR 72-600 on order.

In March 2012, Tanzanian carrier Precision Air bought a third Boeing 737-300 to help expand its route network to additional international destinations, including Lusaka in Zambia and Lubumbashi in the Democratic Republic of Congo. The aircraft was due to join the carrier's existing fleet of two Boeing 737-300s, five ATR-72s and four ATR-42s in mid-April 2012

Dar Es Salaam-based Precision Air, which is officially known as Precision Air Services Limited, configures its 737-300s to seat 126 passengers.

The airline says it made the decision to purchase a third Boeing 737-300 to maintain schedule reliability on its growing route network. Currently in Nairobi, Precision Air’s latest 737-300 will enter scheduled service in mid-April , according to the airline.

The carrier’s existing destinations include destinations within Tanzania such as Kigoma, Mwanza, Bukoba, Musoma, Kigoma, Shinyanga, Mtwara, Zanzibar, Dar es Salaam, Arusha and Kilimanjaro, as well as international destinations such as Nairobi, Mombasa, Johannesburg, Hahaya, and Entebbe.

Precision Air has also signed a code-share with LAM Mozambique Airlines. The new codeshare will allow Precision Air passengers to fly to Mozambique for the first time on LAM. Travelers can now fly from Tanzania to two different Mozambican destinations, Pemba and Nampula.
