Its logical if we need to pay for rebooking, but not that we need to PAY immediately due to medical...

Once Precision Air realized that we were not notified on flights being cancelled to Kigoma, Precision Air team was excellent in accommodating and arranging alternative flights to Kigoma. We also flew with Precision Air from Serengeti to Zanzibar and to Dar Es Salaam. Precision Air was always on time and their customer service was excellent. Special thanks to Anitha for...

Precision Air services were unexpectedly good for the trip from Nairobi to Mwanza and back. It was a small ATR aircraft and short 2.5 hours flight. The cabin crew was very good and the flight was operated on time for all the legs. During the journey, it offers a breathtaking view of Mt. Kilimanjaro. The only recommendation for the company...

Our return flights with Precision Air from Nairobi to Arusha (JRO) were fine. They were on time, and the flight was smooth. Both were only 40 minutes long (flight time), flew passed the mighty Kilimanjaro on the right from Arusha (JRO) to Nairobi, quite a sight! Service was fine and sufficient, no issues with check-in or luggage. The planes themselves...

I had some misgivings after reading some of the reviews - but the flight times best fitted our plans - and certainly our experience was very positive. We flew from Entebbe to Zanzibar via Kilimanjaro ( to pick up more passengers and fuel - we just stayed on the plane) and Dar es Salaam. All flights on time. Staff very...

After reading some of the reviews on TripAdvisor, I was rather concerned that the last leg of our flight from London to Kilimanjaro was on Precision Air. However the flight was on time and comfortable, the staff were friendly and efficient, and overall I was completely satisfied with the service. I would not hesitate to fly Precision Air again.

In Tanzania, I always book to fly with precision air. They are reliable and on time and I've had excellent customer service from them. I have no complaints.

Flew from Nairobi to Dar es Salaam. The flight was short and fine. They provided a snack. You board the plane using stairs- not sure what handicapped people would do!
