Precision Air hopes IPO will see expansion plans take-off


Precision Air’s Initial Public Offering (IPO) will take place on 07-Oct-2011 when the carrier is listed on the Dar es Salaam Stock Exchange. Tanzania’s largest airline plans to use funds raised from the rights issue to fund fleet and route expansion. Tanzania’s transport sector is underdeveloped, although steps are being taken to encourage investment and improve infrastructure, in particular at rural airports.
