Regional aircraft manufacturer ATR has delivered the first of three ATR 72-600 aircraft to Tunisair Express. The Tunisian airline will use these aircraft to renew its regional fleet providing passengers with essential connectivity both domestically and internationally.
By upgrading to the ATR -600 series, the airline has also chosen to prioritise the comfort of its passengers, introducing the latest generation 18” wide seats and the Cabinstream In-Flight Experience, allowing passengers to access a variety of content on their personal electronic devices.
With 72 seats, the turboprop-equipped aircraft consumes 40% less fuel and emit 40% less CO2 than a regional jet.
Tunisair Express operates on Tunisian domestic routes and close international destinations.
The company offers charter flights, including to European travel agents. It was created in 1992 and was called “Tuninter”.
