Company history

Founded under the name “Air Liberté Tunisie” in October 1989, NOUVELAIR is Tunisia’s leading private airline and a subsidiary of the French airline “Air Liberté”. Mainly a charter operator, NOUVELAIR specialises in carrying tourists to Tunisia. 

The history of our airline is marked by success and achievements, thanks to the commitment of our staff and our relationship with partners we have carefully selected.

Because of our vocation and the scope of our operations, NOUVELAIR is constantly and regularly developing.

Throughout our 28 years’ experience, we have continually invested in the renewal and modernisation of our fleet and seen significant increases in the volume of traffic.

Additionally, in 2012 we initiated a new strategic approach with the launch of regular flights to France.
