Precision Air, Tanzania’s leading airline, has appointed a new Chief Executive Officer to succeed Alfonse Kioko who has volunteered to retire after leading the airline to a successful path in ten years.
Sauda Said Rajab, the new Chief Executive Officer, is to take over the top post in the airline in March 2013 to become the first woman airline executive in Tanzania’s airline industry history.
A media release from Precision Air’s head office in the Tanzanian commercial capital city of Dar es Salaam said that Rajab worked with Kenya Airways, where she served in various capacities for the last 23 years, the most recent being as the General Manager in Kenya Airways Cargo Department.
With rich experience in Sales and Operations in the airline industry, Rajab is expected to bring in a new vision and management style to grow the airline amid competition to much greater heights, the Press release said.
Precision Air is currently operating with 12 aircraft consisting of a fleet of ATR equipment and Boeing 737-300 air planes, making it a leading schedule airline in Tanzania.
Its current flights cover most key towns in Tanzania, Kenya, South Africa, Zambia, Zimbabwe, and Congo-Kinshasa.
