Tassili Airlines has relaunched its link between Algiers and Nantes, suspended due to the Covid-19 pandemic, returning to three destinations in France departing from its capital.
As from July 1, 2022, the Algerian company has offered two flights per week between its base in Algiers-Houari Boumediene and Nantes-Atlantique airport, operated by Boeing 737-800 that can accommodate 20 passengers in Business class and 135 in Economy.
Departures are scheduled for Friday at 5:00 p.m. (arrival at 8:20 p.m.) and Sunday at 9:00 a.m. (arrival at 12:20 p.m.); return flights leave Nantes on Friday at 9.20 p.m. (arrival at 10.40 p.m.) and Sunday at 1.20 p.m. (arrival at 2.40 p.m.). Tassili Airlines competes on this route with the low-cost Transavia France.
Abdessamed Ourihane, Managing Director of Tassili Airlines, said in a statement: ” After more than two years of suspension of scheduled international flights due to the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic, Tassili Airlines, an Algerian airline, is reconsidering this line close to his heart. Indeed, we have been able to forge a special relationship with our customers, who have appreciated the quality of service provided both on board and at stopovers. Our fleet is made up of recent aircraft, our crews are experienced. We put all the ingredients for success on our side: Relational proximity, Punctuality, and Quality of service, thus retaining the loyalty of the national community established in Pays de la Loire and the adjoining regions, thus offering it another travel alternative.“.
Nantes Atlantique airport general manager Cyril Girot added: “ VINCI Airports teams are happy with the resumption of flights to Algeria with Tassili Airlines. This destination, open all year round, was expected by the Algerian community of the Great West, and for the economic, cultural, and tourist relations between our territories ”.
After resuming flights for its parent company, the oil company Sonatrach, in the spring, the Algerian company relaunched its flights abroad at the end of June. It now offers flights to Strasbourg-Entzheim, Paris-CDG, and therefore Nantes, with lines from Algiers but also Oran and Constantine, i.e. five routes to France.
