The first Airbus A330 named “Tunis” will strengthen the fleet of national carrier Tunisair late May, according to a statement from the airline published Tuesday.
Inspected by the team of Tunisair technicians on April 9, 2015, the high-capacity aircraft returned to Toulouse Blagnac on April 10, 2015, to ensure completion of the cabin’s layout and to later undergo the necessary tests, the same source added.
Freshly adorned with the colours of Tunisair and Tunisia on its exit from painting workshops of the Châteauroux Centre Airport, the A330 has revealed its name: “Tunis”.
This Airbus A330-200 known to be more environmentally friendly than its predecessors will offer Business Class and highly improved economy class.
Its standard configuration provides 24 seats in business class and 242 in economy class, that intended for long haul hosts 22 passengers in business class and 236 in economy.
The new aircraft also has an Inflight Entertainment (IFE) system in all the seats.
