Tunisia's Minister of Transport, Mahmoud Ben Romdhane made a visit to Toulouse today to witness Tunisia's national airline, Tunisair, taking delivery of its first A330-200


Named “Tunis”, the wide-body aircraft flew out from Toulouse and landed at Tunis-Carthage Airport in the evening, thus joining the airline’s existing fleet of Airbus aircraft comprising four A319s and seventeen A320s.
Boasting an entirely new, fully equipped cabin, Tunisair’s A330-200 will offer its passengers greater comfort, more space, Wi-Fi connectivity and the very latest-generation in-flight entertainment system, the manufacturer said.
The new Tunisair cabin can accommodate 24 passengers in business class and 242 in economy class.
“I am extremely happy to welcome the A330-200 to our fleet, its unique profitability and unrivalled operating costs will allow us to develop our operations and win new market shares, thus supporting our country’s growth in the areas of tourism and economic development,” said Sara Rejeb, President and Chief Operating Officer of Tunisair, during the ceremony .
