MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - April 6, 2016) - Aéroports de Montréal (ADM) is pleased to confirm the arrival of 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.

"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.

Tunisair will be the fourth airline to launch operations out of Montréal-Trudeau in 2016, after WOW Air, Icelandair and Canadian North.

"We are very proud of these additions that show once again the tremendous success of our international hub," Mr. Cherry said.

The launch of this new flight is also an important milestone in the history of Tunisair, marking its very first transatlantic service.

"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."
