Negotiations underway between Tunisair, Airbus for receiving 5 airplanes before 2020

National carrier Tunisair is negotiating with the Airbus Company to bring forward the delivery time of five A320neo airplanes not later than 2019 or 2020 instead of 2021 as concluded in the 2008 agreement between both companies, Secretary of State to Transport Ministry Sarra Rejeb said.

According its 2018 programme, Tunisair is aiming at developing its fleet by purchasing 13 airbuses, eight of which have already been delivered, she added during a plenary session held on Tuesday to adopt the Montreal Convection.

The national carrier’s services are unsatisfactory but Tunisair endeavours to improve them, she affirmed.

In this respect, the luggage theft phenomenon in the airports have declined as only 1 theft case per 10,000 passengers have been recorded by Tunisair.

Tunisair is economically ready to access the Montreal Convention that requires avoiding making mistakes and developing its capacities, she pointed out.

On this occasion, some MPs evoked several issues related to Tunisair’s readiness to apply the Montreal Convention and the structural challenges of the air transport sector such as the ageing fleet, reduction in quality of the services, theft luggage phenomenon, flight delays, etc
