Tassili Airlines opens up to African routes

Posted 4 January 2017 · Add Comment

Tassili Airlines will make its continental African debut during the first half of this year, reports ch-aviation.

Speaking in Algiers during an end of year press conference, the airline’s chief executive officer Belkacem Harchaoui said the carrier had come under increasing pressure from Algerian Prime Minister Abdelmalek Sellal to operate more African routes.

Since its establishment in 1997, Tassili Airlines has focussed primarily on domestic charter flights in support of its parent, Algerian petroleum-producing parent, Sonatrach. In 2013, it ventured into the Algerian scheduled domestic and the general international markets where its services currently focus on France.

Harchaoui said Tassili Airlines had now put in motion plans to offer regular flights from Algiers to Nouakchott, Mauritania via Tindouf, an Algerian commune close to the Mauritanian, Western Saharan, and Moroccan borders.
