Tunisair is the flag carrier airline of Tunisia, and is headquartered in Tunis. It was created in 1948 and began operations in the next year with just a few Dakota DC2 aircraft. The airline operates out of Tunis-Carthage International Airport that forms its main base.
This catchy sounding single-word version of its name evolved from the earlier name of “Tunis Air” in 1990. In its long existence, the airline has evolved in many ways and reached the record figure of 3 million passengers as early as 1997.
The airline offers a range of destinations to travelers and passengers from Saudi Arabia can make a Tunisair online booking to destinations in Europe and Africa, by connecting from Dubai, Kuwait or Jeddah.
The fleet of the carrier consists mainly of Airbus A320 aircraft, and the rest of it is made up of Airbus A319, A319 ER, A300 and Boeing 737. Keeping the fleet updated and well maintained is definitely one of the priorities of this carrier.
It is advisable to check your Tunisair PNR status to confirm the status of your reservation a few hours before your flight. To ensure a quick and smooth check-in, it is advised to arrive at the airport at least 2 hours and 15 minutes before the departure time of the flight. Along with access to the Business Lounges, the airline offers a dedicated check-in and priority boarding to Privilege Class passengers. Passengers who require assistance at the airport may inform the airline in advance and all the required arrangements would be made.
The on-board experience provides ergonomically designed comfortable seats for Business Class passengers, and they may also enjoy a range of well-prepared cuisine choices. The special menu for children that includes a souvenir from Tunisia is sure to delight the young ones on board. Additional entertainment is provided by La Gazelle, the in-flight magazine.
