Tunisair plans to sell its Airbus A300 aircraft as part of its current fleet modernisation programme that will see 10 A320s, three A330s and three A350s joining the national carrier through 2017.

Tunisair has received three new A320s to date and will start taking delivery of two A330-200s in 2014. A third aircraft of the type is planned for 2015. The new aircraft will be used for long-distance flights to New York, Montréal and China, replacing the carrier's ageing A300-600R fleet.

The ex-Emirates Airline A300-600R fleet includes one aircraft built in 1988 and two manufactured in 1990. All three were acquired in 2000 and 2001 from Airbus.

Tunisair says the aircraft will be sold as part of an invitation to tender.
