Tanzanian airline, Precision Air, has reintroduced flights between Dar es Salaam and Entebbe in Uganda.

“On the Dar es Salaam-Entebbe route we will be operating three flights a week – on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays,” said Hillary Mremi, corporate affairs manager at Precision Air.

The carrier suspended flights to Entebbe in 2013 during a route rationalisation and restructuring of its network.

So far, it is the only airline operating direct flights between Tanzania and Uganda, thereby offering opportunities to international tourists who are in Tanzania to fly directly to Uganda.

Following the reintroduction of the direct flights, travellers from Uganda will no longer have to travel to Nairobi or Kigali to connect to Dar es Salaam and Kilimanjaro.

Precision Air commercial director, Robert Owusu, pointed out that the decision to re-launch flights between Dar es Salaam and Entebbe was as a result of passenger demand between the two East African countries.

Apart from the Dar es Salaam-Entebbe route, Precision Air also operates flights to other destinations including Tabora, Kigoma, Mtwara, Bukoba, Arusha, Kilimanjaro, Mwanza, Zanzibar and Nairobi.
