History of Tunisair

The company opened its doors in 1948 with an office located in the city centre of Tunis and operated its first chartered flights with Air France in 1949. In four years, Tunisair covered 6,500 km of distance in the air and celebrated its 500,000th passenger in 1955. At this time, Tunisair was servicing mainly French workers. It was not until 1958 that air stewardesses were seen on board the aircrafts. In 1961 the company acquired its first Caravelle which landed at El Aouina Airport via Nice. In 1964, the route between Tunis and Djerba is opened. The company is therefore very dependant on tourist traffic to be able to run, but opened as well the route between London and Tunisia which multiplied their number of annual British passengers by 30.

In 1977, the company accomplished for the first time carrying one million passengers a year. In the 1980s, Tunisair opened a number of new routes towards Africa and Europe. In the 1990s, the company concentrates on the modernization of their fleet by purchasing Airbus A320s. An official alliance was formed between Tunisair and Air France in 1999. In 2005 the company appeared on-line with the option for its passengers to purchase electronic tickets. Today the company focuses its attention on medical tourism.
