Tunisair (Tunis) took delivery of its first Airbus A330-200 in Toulouse yesterday (June 9), thus becoming a new operator of this type of aircraft.
Named “Tunis”, the pictured A330-243 F-WWKR became TS-IFM (msn 1631) (above and below) on the hand over and flew out from Toulouse and landed at Tunis-Carthage Airport in the evening, thus joining the airline’s existing fleet of Airbus aircraft comprising four A319s and seventeen A320s.

The A330 family, which can seat between 250 and 300 passengers, has to date recorded more than 1,400 orders. More than 1,100 aircraft of this type are already flying with more than 100 operators worldwide.
