One year later, in 1990, the airline started operating with two McDonnell Douglas MD-83 aircraft. In 1995, businessman Aziz Miled took over the airline with his company Tunisian Travel Service (TTS). A year later, TTS decided to change the airlines’ name to its current name Nouvelair Tunisia. In 2003, Nouvelair Tunisia enters into an alliance with Karthago Airlines.
