    Air Transat hiver 2016-2017

    Air Transat dévoile son programme de vols pour l’hiver 2016-2017. Air Transat présente aujourd’hui son programme aérien pour l’hiver 2016-2017, qui propose aux voyageurs 34 destinations soleil et des départs de 22 villes canadiennes, en plus de mettre de l’avant une offre diversifiée vers des destinations européennes appréciées des Canadiens pendant la période hivernale. Air Transat ajoute également 11 nouvelles routes à son calendrier de vols. « L’hiver prochain, Air Transat offrira encore plus de soleil pour tout le monde grâce à son vaste éventail de destinations Sud et Europe ainsi qu’à une présence accrue dans les différents aéroports canadiens », déclare Annick Guérard, présidente et directrice générale de Transat Tours Canada. « L’ajout de petits porteurs à notre flotte permanente nous a donné de la flexibilité pour encore mieux adapter notre offre aux différents marchés. Par ailleurs, nous poursuivrons l’hiver prochain notre programme de vols intérieurs, qui nous permet de proposer davantage de destinations en Europe aux voyageurs de Montréal et de Toronto », conclut Annick Guérard. Air Transat augmente son offre et sa capacité vers l’Amérique centrale, une région pour laquelle l’intérêt des Canadiens est en plein essor. Ainsi, au Québec, deux nouvelles routes s’ajoutent au calendrier hebdomadaire, soit un vol vers San Salvador (Salvador) au départ de Montréal ainsi qu’un vol vers l’île de Roatan (Honduras) au départ de Québec. Pour le marché de Toronto, des liaisons vers Managua (Nicaragua) et Carthagène (Colombie) enrichiront un programme déjà très diversifié. Des vols supplémentaires vers San Jose au départ de Montréal et de Toronto permettront par ailleurs de répondre à la demande croissante pour le Costa Rica. Air Transat augmente également la fréquence de ses vols à destination des Antilles françaises (Guadeloupe et Martinique), et de La Havane. Au Québec, en plus des deux nouvelles routes, Air Transat inaugurera des vols intérieurs liant Bagotville et Rouyn-Noranda à Montréal, offrant ainsi un plus vaste choix de destinations soleil aux voyageurs du Saguenay–Lac-Saint-Jean et de l’Abitibi Témiscamingue. Avec ce programme de vols avec correspondance, les Québécois de ces régions pourront maintenant se rendre dans neuf pays des Caraïbes et de l’Amérique centrale. En Ontario, de nouvelles liaisons vers Cayo Coco et Santa Clara, à Cuba, seront offertes au départ d’Ottawa et de Windsor, respectivement. À Fredericton, deux nouvelles destinations en République dominicaine, soit Puerto Plata et Punta Cana, s’ajoutent au programme. Au départ d’Halifax, c’est la Floride qui s’ouvre aux voyageurs grâce à une nouvelle liaison vers Fort Lauderdale. Finalement, dans l’Ouest canadien, Los Cabos sera maintenant accessible au départ de Vancouver, et Punta Cana au départ de Victoria. L’Europe toute l’année avec Air Transat Air Transat augmente par la même occasion sa capacité vers Londres en offrant dorénavant un vol par jour vers la capitale britannique tout au long de l’année au départ de Toronto. Toujours vers Londres, une liaison hebdomadaire, qui passera à deux vols par semaine dès le mois de décembre, est aussi au programme au départ de Vancouver. Air Transat maintient son vol quotidien vers Paris au départ de Montréal ainsi que sa liaison hebdomadaire vers la Ville Lumière au départ de Québec, disponible dès le mois de février. L’offre hivernale Europe comprend aussi des vols directs vers Malaga (Costa del Sol), en Espagne, ainsi que vers Lisbonne et Faro, au Portugal, et ce, au départ de Montréal et de Toronto. Ces destinations ensoleillées sont très prisées des vacanciers canadiens, notamment parce qu’elles permettent d’allier détente et découvertes et se prêtent bien à de courts comme de longs séjours. Air Transat poursuit cet hiver son programme de vols intérieurs entre Montréal et Toronto, élargissant le choix de destinations transatlantiques pour ces marchés grâce à des vols avec correspondance. Ainsi, les voyageurs de Toronto pourront se rendre à Paris (cinq fois par semaine) et Malaga (une fois par semaine) via Montréal, et ceux de Montréal pourront profiter de liaisons vers Londres (cinq fois par semaine), Manchester (une fois par semaine), Glasgow (une fois par semaine), Porto (une fois par semaine) et Lisbonne (une fois par semaine) en passant par Toronto. Enfin, à compter du mois d’avril, des vols à destination de Rome et de Barcelone seront disponibles au départ de Montréal et de Toronto, notamment afin de répondre à la demande des vacanciers qui, à cette période de l’année, sont nombreux à réaliser une croisière sur la méditerranée. http://www.paxnouvelles.com/article/air-transat-devoile-son-programme-de-vols-pour-lhiver-2016-2017
  6. http://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/montreal-now-a-member-of-the-world-tourism-cities-federation-575257221.html MONTRÉAL, April 11, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Montréal is now officially a member of the World Tourism Cities Federation (WTCF). This non-profit organization is a select club made up of the world's leading tourism cities, such as Los Angeles, Paris, Berlin and Barcelona. Initiated in 2012 by Beijing, its primary objective is to promote exchanges between top international destinations and share tourism development experience. With its headquarters in China, the organization is committed to improving the attractiveness of tourism cities and promoting harmonious economic and social development in these centres. "We are delighted to see that Montréal has a seat at the table with the world's biggest tourism superpowers. This is an excellent opportunity to position our city among the very best urban destinations on the planet," said Denis Coderre, Mayor of Montréal. "Montréal will have the chance to draw inspiration from these reputed destinations to enhance its tourism potential. In addition to participating in discussions, we will seize the opportunity to forge closer ties with various Chinese institutions. China is an important market for Montréal, with very promising tourism and economic opportunities," added Yves Lalumière, President and CEO of Tourisme Montréal. With new direct flights to China and increased economic missions to the country, Montréal is now in an excellent position to attract more tourists from this rapidly developing country. Moreover, tourist traffic from China is expected to increase 15% annually for the next three years. About Tourisme Montréal Tourisme Montréal is responsible for providing leadership in the concerted efforts of hospitality and promotion in order to position the "Montréal" destination on leisure and business travel markets. It is also responsible for developing Montréal's tourism product in accordance with the ever-changing conditions of the market.
  7. Super de belle entrevue ici (Ça confirme plusieurs de nos discussions) As city goes, so do airports (2016-02-13 page B1) As chief executive of the non-profit authority Aéroports de Montréal, James Cherry has invested close to $2 billion in improvements to Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport over the last decade. He sat down recently with Montreal Gazette contributor Peter Hadekel. Q What economic impact does an airport have on a city? A You may have the best airport in the world but if there isn't an economically vibrant city behind it to drive that traffic, then airlines aren't interested. We are more profitable and have better growth than most of the other airports, but our bond rating isn't as good. The reason is that more than 50 per cent of the rating of an airport is the economic activity in the city around it. Our ability to offer air service is far more affected by the economic vitality of the city. (I know Mark, you told us many times) Q Why did it take so long to convince Chinese airlines to come here? A They weren't necessarily convinced that this was a viable market. It took us years to convince them. Now we have Air China flying three times a week to Beijing and they are enchanted with the results (GREAT). The next logical thing would be for Air China to offer more than three times a week or ultimately, within a few years, go daily. Q So what's the key to getting more destinations? A The city has to be realistic. I get people telling me all the time: 'Why don't you have a daily flight to Helsinki? It's an emerging city.' Well, take a look at the numbers: 10 people a day go from Montreal to Helsinki. I'm sorry, you're not going to get a flight there. In order to get a direct flight at least three times a week, depending on the type of aircraft, you typically need between 30,000 and 40,000 passengers a year. Q What destinations are you adding in 2016? A Reykjavik and Lyon are starting in May. Air Canada to Casablanca is starting next summer, as well. Philadelphia, Denver and Houston are also starting this year. Remember, it's very tough for an airline to make money just on tourist business. They need that business traffic, that's what pays the overhead. Q What about the market for connecting passengers going through Montreal? A It's 18 per cent and growing, but that's not considered high. Toronto and Vancouver would be about 30 per cent. We've been targeting something like 25 per cent. Virtually all that connecting traffic is on Air Canada. We have more destinations for people to connect to today. There are 140 destinations served directly by this airport with more than 30 airlines. Transit passengers are very important because there's revenue to be gained from having them go through your airport. They are also important to justify a flight. There are two or three European destinations to which we would not have flights, were it not for connecting passengers. Zurich, Brussels and Geneva are good examples. Q The domestic traffic in Toronto is three times what it is here and in Vancouver and Calgary it's close to two times. How do you explain that? Calgary it's close to two times. How do you explain that? A Quebecers don't fly domestically. They don't vacation in Alberta, B.C. or Ontario and the business traffic here is as much north-south as east-west. Q You offer financial incentives to attract airlines to serve Montreal. Is that getting more expensive? A Yes it is. Airlines know that everybody wants them. They will not establish a new route unless they are getting some sort of incentive. The logic of it is that the upfront cost tends to be expensive because of promotions and everything else. And there's a period where they tend to lose money so we offer them some support, usually in the form of lower landing fees or a budget to help them promote the flight. Q Is the cross-border competition significant from airports like Plattsburgh and Burlington? Do you feel it? A No, and it's going down this year because of the dollar. It's way down. Q You have complained in the past about the rent that Aéroports de Montréal is charged by the federal government and the property tax due to the city of Montreal. Is that still an issue for you? A Yes, I take every opportunity to talk about it but I know it falls on deaf ears. So far, the federal government has shown absolutely no interest in solving the problem. The city of Montreal is even worse. They just close their ears. Between the two of them, we will pay close to $100 million this year. Property taxes and rent take 20 per cent offthe top just to provide a public service. This is happening across the country. More than $300 million a year goes to the government of Canada from the airports. Q In the surveys that you do, what is the biggest concern for passengers using the airport? A Access to the site is the No. 1 complaint: getting in and out, traffic, the Dorval Circle. I'm still looking at the bridge to nowhere (part of the new Dorval interchange under construction). It's been a bridge to nowhere for five or six years. We rebuilt all the roads on this property to match with it. This was all supposed to be ready in 2011. We spent $100 million of our money making that happen and it was done on time. And we're still waiting for the project to be completed. Q What's going on with Mirabel following the decision to demolish the passenger terminal? A Mirabel is still operating for freight. There are between 15,000 and 20,000 aircraft movements there. Business aircraft use it, too. Bombardier is up there with Pratt Whitney. We characterize it as a business, industrial and freight airport. We're going to put between $50 million and $60 million up there in the next year to redo the principal runway. We're not abandoning Mirabel; the vocation is solid. The decision wasn't made in a vacuum. We consulted with the city of Montreal, the Quebec government and Transport Canada. There was nothing wrong with the process. We were very highly accountable. Q Part of the debate about keeping Mirabel as a passenger airport was the noise and congestion issue at Dorval. Do you think you've managed that issue adequately? A Essentially, over the last 14 years we've doubled the passengers at this airport with the same number of aircraft movements. (interesting) The airlines have gotten very good at this. They don't fly half-empty planes. Is it perfect? No - there will always be people who are not going to be happy with noise. (Also, YUL dates back to 1941; nobody was around then...Overall noise also went down since Q What's the case for public transit to the airport? A We have over 11,000 parking spaces here and for three months of the year, there's no room. I don't want to build more parking spaces because I think it's a dumb thing to do and will encourage more people to bring cars here. We need two things: a Dorval Circle that works and a train that connects to downtown. Q The Caisse de dépot et placement is looking at funding the rail project. Do you think this is providing some new momentum? A It's interesting. They haven't progressed far. But from our perspective there should be better transit to the West Island that incorporates the airport. If the Caisse makes this happen, we're ready. We've done all sorts of ridership studies and feasibility studies, and we've given them all of it. Q You have a train station location that's ready in the centre of the airport? A Yes. In 2006, when we started the project to build out the U.S. jetty and a new hotel, we had a choice to make. We said: 'If we don't do this now, we're going to shut off any possibility of having a train station.' So the shell is there. We're parking cars in it now but it could be fitted out within a year and ready to roll.
  8. the title says it all. These airlines are getting new long-haul airplanes and looking at new possibilities to grow in North America. Rumours have pointed that each of these airlines have some kind of interest (or had) interest in Montreal. With the IAG investment. Aer Lingus is looking at North Atlantic expansion. Los Angeles, Dallas, Miami, Montreal would be the largest destinations with no service. Let's see how much these materialize vs. other cities in the US/Canada. Then we will really know how Montreal compares internationally.
  9. Le voyagiste exploitera 19 nouvelles liaisons aériennes pour relier des villes canadiennes aux destinations soleil. Au Québec, cela se traduira notamment par trois nouveaux vols au départ de Montréal (La Havane, Ixtapa et Rio Hato au Panama) et un autre au départ de Québec (La Romana). En fait, Transat cesse restreindre ses inventaires pour renouer avec la conquête de parts de marchés. «Nous augmenterons notre offre globale au 13% dans l’ensemble du Canada», révélait Annick Guérard, directrice général de Transat Tours. «Jean-Marc Eustache l’a annoncé en conférence de presse : nous cessons de réduire nos inventaires, tant sur le Sud que sur l’Europe.» Un redéploiement qui, au Québec, se traduira par la mise en marché vers les destinations soleil de 85 000 sièges de plus pendant la saison d’hiver et de 30 000 sièges supplémentaires pour la saison d’été! http://www.paxnouvelles.com/article/transat-lance-sa-saison-sud-2015-2016
  10. Air Transat : 16 nouveautés pour l’hiver prochain. Publié le 22 mai 2015 à 10h00 par François Duclos dans Actualité, Info pratique - 3 commentaires La compagnie aérienne Air Transat a présenté son programme d’hiver 2015-2016, marqué par seize nouvelles routes et plus de 35 destinations au départ de 19 aéroports canadiens. Le Montréal – Paris sera désormais proposé tous les jours et pendant toute l’année. L’offre hivernale de Transat se décline sur l’Europe grâce au programme annuel de vols directs à destination de Paris et de Londres, ainsi qu’à une offre des plus intéressantes vers Malaga (Costa del Sol), en Espagne, et à Lisbonne et Faro, au Portugal. Encore plus présente sur le marché transatlantique, Air Transat augmente la fréquence de ses vols vers Londres au départ de Toronto, offrant jusqu’à 5 vols par semaine, et augmente sa capacité vers Paris au départ de Montréal, offrant dorénavant un vol par jour tout au long de l’année. Les vols hebdomadaires au départ de Toronto vers Glasgow et Manchester sont aussi au programme ainsi que la liaison hebdomadaire vers Londres-Gatwick au départ de Vancouver, qui augmente à deux vols par semaine dès le mois de février. Fidèle à son titre de plus important transporteur aérien canadien spécialisé dans les voyages vacances, Air Transat répond aussi à la demande de sa clientèle canadienne en ajoutant seize nouvelles routes à son calendrier de vols vers les destinations soleil. Elle augmente considérablement son offre sur Cuba grâce à l’ajout de vols vers Santa Clara au départ de Winnipeg, Calgary, Vancouver, Saskatoon et Edmonton. Au Québec, trois nouvelles routes s’ajoutent au programme Sud, soit un vol vers La Romana en République Dominicaine au départ de la ville de Québec, ainsi que vers La Havane à Cuba et Rio Hato au Panama au départ de Montréal. Les voyageurs de l’Ontario pourront eux aussi bénéficier des avantages liés au nouveau vol vers l’aéroport de Rio Hato au Panama, ainsi que de l’ajout d’une liaison vers La Romana. À Halifax, Air Transat ajoute un vol vers Cayo Coco à Cuba. Au départ de St. John’s, c’est la Floride qui s’ouvre grâce à la nouvelle liaison vers Orlando. Et finalement, dans l’Ouest canadien, trois nouvelles destinations au Mexique s’ajoutent au programme, soit Ixtapa et Cozumel au départ d’Edmonton et Calgary, et Huatulco au départ de Regina. « Cet hiver, Air Transat offre encore plus de Sud pour tout le monde grâce à son vaste éventail de destinations incluant les Caraïbes, l’Amérique centrale et du Sud, Cuba, la République dominicaine, la Jamaïque, le Mexique et la Floride », a déclaré dans un communiqué Jean-François Lemay, directeur général d’Air Transat. « L’introduction de petits porteurs à notre flotte permanente nous a permis de moduler notre offre en fonction de la demande de chacun des aéroports canadiens que nous desservons. Nous avons ainsi augmenté notre capacité sur le marché et notre nombre de routes sur le Sud, offrant ainsi plus de choix et de flexibilité pour les vacanciers ». Rappelons que le programme d’été en France d’Air Transat inclut à Paris jusqu’à 3 vols par jour vers Montréal, jusqu’à 4 vols par semaine vers Québec, jusqu’à 6 vols par semaine vers Toronto, jusqu’à 2 vols par semaine vers Calgary et jusqu’à 4 vols par semaine vers Vancouver (dont 3 vols directs).

    Walk Score™

    J'ai trouvé un site plutôt cool (je trouve). Walk Score™ Le site évalue par différent critères savants le degré de marchabilité (je sais pas si il y a un meilleur mot ?) d'un quartier. Il génère un score de 1 à 100. * 90–100 = Walkers' Paradise: Most errands can be accomplished on foot and many people get by without owning a car. * 70–89 = Very Walkable: It's possible to get by without owning a car. * 50–69 = Somewhat Walkable: Some stores and amenities are within walking distance, but many everyday trips still require a bike, public transportation, or car. * 25–49 = Car-Dependent: Only a few destinations are within easy walking range. For most errands, driving or public transportation is a must. * 0–24 = Car-Dependent (Driving Only): Virtually no neighborhood destinations within walking range. You can walk from your house to your car! Il donne aussi une liste de tous les commerces par catégorie et leur distance du point de mesure (l'adresse de recherche) Le site est principalement destiné au É.U. mais il fonctionne pour le Canada. Le plus gros bug que je remarque, c'est le manque de d'information sur les commerces environnants. En fait il semble avoir moins de commerces inscrits dans la banque de donnée Google au Canada qu'au É.U. Pour mon quartier, il manquait plusieurs commerces dans le relevé. C'est certains que ça doit affecter à la baisse le score finale. J'ai vérifié pour des endroits centrales comme le plateau et le centre-ville et le score est plutôt bas. Il me semble que plusieurs quartier de Montréal devrait être des Walkers' Paradise

  16. Toronto a Hot Destination for U.S. Travellers January 31, 2012 Tourism Toronto has announced that 2011 was another record year for tourism in Toronto as the number of hotel room nights sold surpassed 9 million for the first time ever. Additionally, for the first time since 2006, Toronto has seen an increase in overnight visitors from the U.S. “Toronto has a new lustre among sophisticated U.S. travellers, illustrated by its inclusion as one of Travel + Leisure magazine’s ‘Hottest Destinations in 2012,’” said David Whitaker. “Getting that kind of recommendation is a real coup and we should all be proud that the efforts so many have put into building this city over the past decade are being recognized.” http://c2cblog.tumblr.com/tagged/Tourism

Le site d'achat de forfaits de voyage à rabais précise que Montréal, New York et Toronto occupent respectivement les trois premières places du palmarès de 10 villes. Ces trois villes sont des destinations de choix pour les Canadiens habitant près de la frontière canado-américaine. Viennent ensuite Orlando et Fort Lauderdale, en Floride; Las Vegas, au Nevada; Vancouver, en Colombie-Britannique; Honolulu, à Hawaï; Seattle, dans l'État de Washington, et San Francisco, en Californie. En raison de la fluctuation des taux de change, Hotwire.com précise que les prix dans plusieurs villes frontalières sont demeurés concurrentiels, et que cela pouvait signifier des économies importantes lors d'un voyage. La plupart des autres villes sur la liste offrent plutôt l'occasion de ranger les manteaux et de se détendre au chaud. Le président du groupe Hotwire, Clem Bason, mentionne que les taux de change favorables et les rabais importants facilitent l'utilisation maximale du budget de vacances pour les Fêtes. Par voie de communiqué, M. Bason a indiqué mardi que les Canadiens étaient désormais plus réceptifs à l'idée de passer les Fêtes dans une destination vacances, qu'elle se trouve près de la maison ou dans un autre pays. 1.

Pour l'ensemble des destinations, tous continents confondus, Québec se classe au 19e rang cette année.La ville identifiée comme la meilleure destination aux États-Unis et au Canada par les lecteurs de Travel + Leisure est New York. San Francisco suit au deuxième rang. Selon Dany Thibault, président du conseil de l'Office du tourisme de Québec, cette reconnaissance est sans doute redevable aux festivités du 400e anniversaire de la ville de Québec et aux efforts promotionnels consentis sur le marché américain en 2008. Montréal est pour sa part au neuvième rang cette année, alors qu'elle figurait au septième rang de ce classement l'an dernier. Pour l'ensemble de la planète, la meilleure destination 2009 de Travel + Leisure est la ville d'Udaipur, en Inde, qui détrône ainsi le numéro de l'an dernier, Bangkok.

    Montreal on the geotourism map

    Source: The Gazette New city guide puts Montreal on the geotourism map By MONIQUE BEAUDIN, The Gazette, June 16, 2009 It's a tourist map with a difference. Along with the usual destinations, such as Little Italy and Mount Royal, you'll find more unusual ones, like a series of "green" alleyways in the Plateau Mont Royal and a boutique that makes clothes from recycled materials. Unveiled yesterday by Mayor Gérald Tremblay, the new map promotes geotourism - that is, tourism that protects and preserves the geographic character of a destination, such as its heritage, culture, environment and well-being of its residents. The map was the brainchild of the U.S.-based National Geographic Society, with whom Montreal was the first city in the world to sign an agreement in 2007 promising to adhere to 13 principles of geotourism. "You live in a magnificent and sophisticated city," said Jonathan Tourtellot, the director of National Geographic's Centre for Sustainable Destinations in Washington, D.C. "Tourists should leave here knowing they have visited a city that is unique in Canada, unique in North America, unique in the world. That's geotourism." Creating the map - the first of its kind in the world for a city - took months of consultation with conservation and community groups, as well as the input of residents, who suggested more than 400 locations that scream out "Mont-real." Some that made the cut include Habitat 67, Promenade Bellerive in Montreal's Mercier district and Le Cartet in Old Montreal where visitors can "break bread at communal tables with real-life Montrealers." The map encourages people to visit the city by bicycle, métro or on foot saying "this is one city where you can see almost everything without setting foot in a car." Historical information includes the fact that St. Laurent Blvd. was "reputed for risqué nightlife during the city's heyday as an inland seaport." Other areas with similar geotourism maps include Norway and the Mexican state of Baja California. You can check it out online at www.montrealgeo.com

  25. Tunisair May Sell Stake as Country Divests Assets (Update2) By Mahmoud Kassem June 5 (Bloomberg) -- Tunisair, the national airline of Tunisia, may sell a 15 percent stake as the North African country disposes of state assets amid an equities boom. ``We might sell more shares to a strategic investor, but the government will always want to hold a controlling stake,'' Adel Gaida, chief financial officer of Tunisair, or Societe Tunisienne de l'Air, said in an interview yesterday in London. ``We have been thinking of doing this for some time, though we don't have a timetable.'' Tunisia is selling assets to attract investment as buyers, particularly from the oil-rich Persian Gulf region, pour money into a country that isn't on emerging-market equity indexes and is commonly classed as a ``frontier market.'' Tunisia's main stock index, the Tunindex, has advanced 13 percent this year, making it the best-performing index in North Africa. Tunisair rose 0.8 percent to 4.05 dinars in Tunis trading as of 11:50 a.m. The stock has gained 6.6 percent this year, giving the company a market value of 329 million Tunisian dinars ($278 million). The airline serves more than 50 destinations in 25 countries and carried 3.5 million passengers last year. The government holds 74 percent. Companies on the Tunindex have one of the cheapest average price-to-earnings ratios in the Middle East at 13 times estimated earnings. The Dow Jones Arabia Titans 50 Index, a measure of 50 Arab stocks in 10 countries, trades at 21 times estimated earnings. The Tunisian government raised as much as $2.25 billion from the sale of a 35 percent stake in Telecom Tunisie, the country's largest telephone company, in 2006. Tunisair Expansion Tunisair is expanding in Africa and adding trans-Atlantic and Asian destinations, Gaida said. The carrier owns a 51 percent stake in Air Mauritania, which it formed as a joint venture in December 2006. Air France-KLM Group has a 5.6 percent stake in Tunisair, while 20 percent of shares trade freely. ``We are planning to add New York, Montreal, Beijing and Tokyo on our list of destinations, but that won't happen until we get our new fleet starting from 2011 because we would need A350s for the long haul,'' Gaida said. The airline's primary business is flying vacationers from Europe to beaches in Tunis. Airbus SAS, the world's largest planemaker, said on April 29 that Tunisair agreed to a 16-plane order valued at as much as $2 billion at list prices. Tunisia plans to acquire three twin- aisle A350-800 airliners, three A330-200s and 10 single-aisle A320s from the Toulouse, France-based manufacturer. ``We prefer to stick to one manufacturer because it saves us costs in maintenance,'' Gaida said. ``We will pay 10 percent of the cost of the new Airbuses and the remainder we will seek credit for.'' Tunisair's revenue rose 12 percent in the first quarter, compared with the same period a year ago. The company may distribute a dividend on 2007 profit this year, Gaida said.
