Etihad Airways, Tanzania's Precision Air announce new codeshare agreement

Dec 27, 2016: Etihad Airways has expanded its reach across East Africa as it has entered into a new codeshare agreement with Tanzania’s domestic airline Precision Air. 

As a part of the new 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.

Kevin Knight, chief strategy & planning officer, Etihad Airways, said, “Precision Air is an innovative and award-winning airline and this new codeshare agreement demonstrates Etihad Airways’ growing ambitions to strengthen its operations across the East African region.

“This is a further example of our strategy of working with partners to extend our reach, and provide business and leisure travellers with more choice.”

Sauda Rajabu, Group managing director and CEO at Precision Air Services, said, “With this new partnership we are making it easier for passengers from across our domestic network to travel to Abu Dhabi, with convenient onward access to over 100 destinations on Etihad’s network, in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, Australia and the Americas.”

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.
