OACA: launch of mobile app.”Aeroports de Tunisie”

The mobile app. “Aeroports de Tunisie” (Tunisia airports) allowing passengers to consult departure and arrival flight schedules in real time and monitor the status of a flight, has been launched on Thursday in Tunis.

An agreement was signed on the occasion between CEO of OACA (Office of Airports and Civil Aviation), Khaled Chelly and Director General of Orange Tunisia, Thierry Millet.

Speaking, Chelly said the office aims through this application, developed in partnership with private telecommunications operator “Orange Tunisia”, to modernise its information tools and better meet the needs of all customers at its airports by offering passengers and those accompanying them or waiting for them an information service in real time.

Available free on the Android and IOS platforms, “Aeroports de Tunisie” allows customers of the 7 airports managed by the OACA, namely Tunis-Carthage, Djerba-Zarzis, Sfax-Thyna, Tozeur-Nefta, Tabarka-Ain Draham, Gafsa-Ksar and GabAs-Matmata, to consult the schedules of the departure and arrival flights in real time to monitor the status of a flight, get informed on the services offered and the businesses available in the airports and access to tourist information about Tunisia.

Chelly also pointed out that this application is part of a major project to digitise the services of the OACA.

He added that Tunis Carthage airport will close 2017 with 6 million passengers and around 30 million airport users.

CEO of Orange Tunisia, Thierry Millet said this application is the result of a partnership between the public and private sectors (PPP).

He added that the OACA has entrusted Orange Tunisia, as part of the corporate social responsibility, with the creation of this application through its development centre “Orange Developer Center” which has framed and accompanied, within the framework of their graduation projects, three young graduates in the field of computer science.

Minister of Tourism and Handicrafts, Salma Elloumi welcomed this initiative launched by the OACA and called on the young graduates to set up similar projects in the tourism sector to promote Tunisian tourism.

She said 70% of the budget of the Ministry of Tourism is dedicated to communication through digitalisation.
