Tanzania’s leading airline Precision Air announced plans to launch direct flights to the Kahama District in the Shinyanga region, located in the northwestern part of the country. With the introduction of the new service, Precision Air will become the first IATA member airline, to operate flights to the region’s capital Kahama (KBH) – a place that still thrives on traditional industries like gold mining.
Commencing September 05, 2017, Precision Air will offer three flights a week (Wed/Fri/Sun), and strategically increasing frequency, based on demand. This new Precision Air service is expected to speed up economic developments in the district and Shinyanga region at large.
“Our new service will save passengers from Shinyanga and Kahama the time and cost of driving all the way to Mwanza to catch their flight to Dar es Salaam,” commented Mr. Hillary Mremi, Corporate Affairs Manager at Precision Air. “This is part of our efforts to improving the infrastructure throughout the region, the growth of our hub in Dar es Salaam, as well as the overall economy in Tanzania. True to our motto ‘You are why we fly’, this new route is meant to serve the needs of our people. It is our hope that this flight will open up Kahama to the world.”
