About Tunisair

Tunisia's flag carrier Tunisair was founded in 1948 and began operations the following year. The airline was set up by Tunisia's government, which still owns the majority of the company. The airline's main hub is at Tunis-Carthage International Airport with its headquarters located in Tunis, the capital city of Tunisia. Tunisair's most commonly used plane is the Airbus A320 although it currently has a total fleet of more than 30 Boeing and Airbus aircraft.

Tunisair flies to more than 100 destinations in Africa, the Middle East, North America and Europe. Among those, it operates flights to a number of UK airports including London Heathrow, Manchester and London Gatwick, with top destinations such as Jeddah, Algiers and Dusseldorf popular year round. It applied to join the SkyTeam alliance in the late 1990s but was unsuccessful, however, the Tunisian airline is part of the Arab Air Carriers Organization. It operates codeshare flights with Middle East Airlines.
