April 07, 2016: Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) receives Tunisair to Montréal–Trudeau, beginning June 18. The scheduled carrier based in Tunis will offer two flights a week between Montréal and Tunis on a year-round basis aboard a 266-seat Airbus 330-200. This flight is its very first transatlantic service.
“Besides offering a direct link with Tunis, this route will be a useful option for passengers travelling to West Africa and the Middle East,” said James Cherry, president and chief executive officer of ADM.
“We are very proud of these additions that show once again the tremendous success of our international hub,” Cherry said.
“It is perfectly natural for Tunisair to choose Montréal as its first entry point into America,” said Faouzi Mouelhi, general manager of Tunisair for North America, the United States and Canada. “We are indeed very happy to serve the world’s second francophone city and the ideal hub between America and the Francophonie.”
Aéroports de Montréal is the local airport authority that has been responsible for the management, operation and development of Montréal–Trudeau and Montréal–Mirabel international airports since 1992.
