Short flights but uneventful and comfortable...smaller AT70 aircraft but still a fine flight. Just didn’t like that they’d cancel flights for no reason and you’d have to rebook...twice!

The airport staff at Arusha harassed for tips just for checking in the luggage which we thought was weird. Coz thats not...

2 1/2hr flight from Nairobi to Dar es Salaam (via Zanzibar). Pity it was after sunset, i wanted to see Zanzibar from the air..... Small 80+seater, a bit tired inside but generally an OK flight. I sat at the back so had limited space , especially as the person in front reclined his seat, so not a very comfortable flight,...

Unfortunately, there is no...

The flight was just a short island hop, the actual flight itself was fine, too short for any form of service on board. The things to be aware of are: Information is very poor, I am still not entirely certain what happened, but I think our flight was amalgamated with another to Arusha which was due to leave earlier, our...

What I found odd was the driver who came to make the delivery had the audacity to ask for a tip. Uh let me get this...

We were travelling from Kilimanjaro to Seychelles via Nairobi, booked & confirmed (thru Kenya airways) on the Precision 10.40am Kili to Nairobi flight. By chance when checking all reservations 2 wks before flying we found that flight CANCELLED, and no alternative substituted! Our only alternative turned out to be a 05.50 flight; meaning wakeup 03.00 at Arusha hotel. The hotel...

An absolute shame for this airline company! On our way from our 1 week safari to Zanzibar, we have decided to select Precision Air as they were the only one proposing a fair luggage allowance of 23KG. This came initially very handy as we were ending our trip and therefore, our luggage stuffed with gifts and other souvenirs. We arrived...
