Tunis Air opts for Airbus aircraft for its fleet renewal programme news
30 April 2008

Tunis Air has placed orders with Airbus for three A350 XWB-800s, three A330-200s and 10 A320s, the Toulouse, France-based aircraft manufacturer said yesterday.

It did not announce any delivery dates for the order, however.

"This acquisition is part of a major fleet development that will allow Tunis Air to prepare for the future and take up the market opportunities that exist for our airline," President and CEO, Nabil Chettaoui said.

Airbus said while the A350s will be used on routes to North America and Asia, the A330s will allow Tuinis Air to start "new routes to North America in the near future."

The carrier currently operates three A300-600s, 12 A320s, two A319s and two A319ERs, as well as four 737-500s and seven 737-600s.
