Tunisair is the flag carrier of Tunisia, and was formed in 1948. Its head office is in Tunis, and it operates out of its main base at Tunis-Carthage International Airport. When it first commenced operations in 1949, the airline made a modest beginning with just 4 Dakota DC3 aircraft.
Until 1990, the airline was known by the name of “Tunis Air” and it was in this year that the name took its present form. The airline reached the record figure of carrying 3 million passengers in a year by 1997, and their commitment to excellence has carried into the new millennium as well.
Passengers traveling from the Middle East can connect with the airline at Dubai, Kuwait or Jeddah, from where they could make a Tunisair online booking to many cities in Europe and Africa.
The carrier operates with a modernized and well-updated fleet consisting mainly of Airbus A320 aircraft, and also a few other models such as Airbus A319, A319 ER, A300 and Boeing 737.
