Hmmm, you asked that question some time ago in the trip report forum, didn't you?  Insane U're going to start your own low-cost carrier?  Smile

I think France is, without doubt, a great market for Tunisian airlines!

I would start to

NCE , LYS , ORY / CDG , BCN and LIN with A321s or B738s, as I think cheap tickets from France to Tunisia will be very attractive! Don't know about the fares of TunisAir, etc though.

There is definite potential but what about regulatory problems.

TU flights make someone "detesting" flying !!! Imagine a TUN/MIR-ORY at 394 Euros !!! And although that prices,flights are full most of the time !!!


I think that a rule is being discussed and to be operative in the next few months eliminating the distinctions between scheduled and charter operators and giving a little breath of air to the aviation scene...

SkyEurope (a Slovak LCC) began a twice weekly Bratislave-Cairo flights.
Snowflake (SAS's LCC) will begin a twice weekly Stokholm-cairo flights.
Maersk Air (I think they are a LCC) have a weekly Copenhagen-Cairo flight.
