Tunisair Receives First ATR 72-600

On Tuesday, Tunisair Express took delivery of an ATR 72-600 aircraft in Toulouse. The operator plans to receive two more aircraft of the same model, which will fulfill the order that it placed directly with the OEM.

“We are looking forward to introducing this new ATR aircraft with the latest comfort and technology to our passengers, with this first delivery marking an important step in our fleet renewal. Regional aviation provides essential connectivity for Tunisia and the unbeatable economics of the ATR 72-600, together with the best cabin, make it perfect for both our domestic and international operations.”

Yosr Chouari, Director General of Tunisair Express

In September, the company outlined its fleet expansion plan, which also includes the planned arrival of five Airbus A320neo aircraft in 2021 and 2022.
