Tanzania's Precision Air and Etihad Airways Sign Codeshare Deal
In a move to extend its reach across East Africa, Etihad Airways has entered into a codeshare agreement with Precision Air, Tanzania’s leading domestic airline.
Under the new codeshare agreement, Etihad Airways will place its EY code on Precision Air flights between Dar es Salaam and Kilimanjaro, Mwanza, Mtwara, Nairobi, Zanzibar, Pemba, and between Nairobi and Kilimanjaro and Zanzibar.
Precision Air will place its PW code on Etihad’s daily services between Dar es Salaam and Abu Dhabi, strengthening ties between East Africa and the United Arab Emirates.
Passengers will be able to book flights via travel agents from 21 December 2016, or through the airlines’ sales offices and contact centres, for travel from 11 January 2017 onwards.
Etihad Airways currently operates scheduled services to 10 destinations in Africa, including Johannesburg, Nairobi, Entebbe, Dar es Salaam, Khartoum, Casablanca, Rabat, Lagos, Cairo and Mahé in the Seychelles.
