Flight from Serengeti to Zanzibar: Precision or Coastal?

My partner and are very much looking forward to explore Tanzania and the national parks!

To ease our travel, we will fly out of Serengeti (SEU Seronera airstrip) to Zanzibar (ZNZ).

There are two options for that day:

1) Coastal: very reliable reputation, 1.000 USD for both of us; limited luggage 15kg incl. hand luggage

2) Precision Air: mixed reputation, 530 USD for both of us (so 50% cheaper); better luggage conditions.

For precision, this is a apparently a new flight route they implemented a couple of months ago.

I would love to go with Precision, but am not sure if Coastal might be the better choice here (I don't want to be "stuck" in the Serengeti, waiting for a flight which might not operate). So experience / opinions welcome :-)

Thank you!!!

Coastal is the best option. You can also try Air excel and Regional air services.

Karibu Tanzania.

Coastal.

Also know that they work closely with a couple of other reputable airlines. Between them they'll make sure that you get where you're going.

Go with Precision Airway, its a good company operating in the country for years with flights outside Tanzania as well. They have added the trip to Serengeti recently but they have good services and not disappointing. Also their planes are larger compared to coastal aviation.
