Operated by TAV Tunisie, a subsidiary of TAV Airports, a member of Groupe ADP, Enfidha Hammamet international airport offers a strategic and convenient entry point for Tunisia’s visitors, at the favor of its ideal location at a crossroad of the country’s major cities and main touristic resorts
Guclu Batkin, President Director General of TAV Tunisie, said: “This happy occasion gives us the opportunity to look back on the history of our venture and to project ourselves into the future to perceive all that Enfidha Airport can bring to Tunisia’s tourism and transport sectors in the decades to come. In 2007, TAV Airports came to Tunisia with a huge investment at a time where the global economy was going through a severe financial crisis and all international investors were delaying their projects. We were confident in Tunisia's socio-economic prospects and in the ingenuity of the Tunisian people. We are now delighted to realize that we successfully met the challenge and our celebration today cannot be passed without acknowledging all who helped and contributed across the past decade
Opened on 4 December 2009, Enfidha-Hammamet Airport distinguished itself as the first environment friendly airport in Tunisia by qualifying to Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) Level 3 Optimization in 2019.
TAV operates Monastir and Enfidha-Hammamet Airports in Tunisia. In the first 11 months of 2019, the two airports served 3 million 53 thousand passengers, with a 24% increase compared to the same period in 2018.
