According to “Air Journal,” the future Tunisian airline is well ready to fly. Indeed, the Department of Transportation is currently studying the latest procedures allowing Syphax Airlines to operate the Sfax-Thyna international airport from mid-March.
Syphax Airlines had announced last January the signing of an agreement worth 55 million dollars for the acquisition of two aircraft with capacity of 150 passengers each.
Delivery of the first plane at the Sfax-Thyna international airport will be made February 29, 2012 and the second on March 14, 2012. These two aircraft will provide eight daily flights from the Sfax-Thyna international airport to Tripoli (Libya), Morocco, France, Italy, Belgium and Turkey.
