Tunisair expands in Africa

After a 5 hour-and-25 min-flight, the Tunisair Airbus 320 landed, on Monday, at the Conakry International Airport (Republic of Guinea) in the first flight of the public carrier to that destination.

A ceremony was held on this occasion, in the presence of a Tunisian delegation consisting of two ministers, namely of Industry and Trade, Zied Ladhari and of Transport Anis Ghedira, representatives of the Ministries of Industry, Higher Education and Scientific Research and Tourism, Customs, Civil Aviation and Airports (OACA) as well as nearly 40 businessmen and representatives of travel agencies and CEPEX.

The ceremony was also attended by the Tunisian Ambassador in Conakry and the Ambassador of Guinea to Tunisia.

Tunisair has scheduled 2 return flights a week (Monday and Thursday) from Tunis Carthage International Airport to Conakry International Airport via Dakar (Senegal).

This new Tunis-Conakry flight is part of Tunisair’s commercial policy aimed at opening up more to the African market.

The national carrier will therefore serve 13 African destinations, through 62 weekly flights departing from Tunis Carthage airport, at the end of 2017.

Tunisair also announced that it will set up a new link to Cotonou (Benin) via Abidjan before the end of 2017.

It will also link Tunis to Douala (Cameroon) and Ndjamena (Chad), during the summer of 2018. One more link to Libreville (Gabon) is also planned for the summer of 2019.

Tunisair will also reinforce its flight programme for the summer of 2017, by a daily flight to Abidjan and six weekly flights to Dakar compared with four currently.
