Emirates is set to enhance its onboard experience and increase capacity on its Tunisian service with the introduction of a larger Boeing 777-300 aircraft starting from 2 June 2016.

The Boeing 777-300 will replace the current Airbus A340-300 used on the route, and offer customers even more onboard comfort, entertainment and seats, including an updated inflight entertainment system. The new aircraft has 12 lie-flat seats in First Class and 42 in Business Class, and, due to its bigger size, 310 spacious seats in Economy Class.

Tunisian travellers and visitors to the country can look forward to Emirates’ award-winning ice entertainment system, offering over 2500 channels of on demand audio and visual entertainment, from the latest movies, TV shows, music, audio books and games.
