Tunisair has taken delivery of its first Airbus A330-200 in Toulouse on 9 June 2015.
Named “Tunis”, the wide-body aircraft flew out from Toulouse and landed at Tunis-Carthage Airport in the evening, thus joining the airline’s existing fleet of Airbus aircraft comprising four A319s and seventeen A320s. The new Tunisair A330 can accommodate 24 passengers in business class and 242 in economy class.
The A330 family, which can seat between 250 and 300 passengers, has to date recorded more than 1,400 orders. More than 1,100 aircraft of this type are already flying with more than 100 operators worldwide.
