Tunisian start-up airline Jasmin Airways – based at the Monastir Habib Bourguiba Airport – plans to commence operations on 10 June 2019 flying its first flight to Sarajevo in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

The carrier will operate the route with one leased Embraer 170, seating 76 passengers but plans to extend the service until the winter 2019/20 season, depending on demand.

It also aims to increase its fleet with the addition of two new aircraft each year.

The new airline is headed by chief executive officer, Mehdi Gharbi and president, Ali Ben Amara.

The aircraft, serial 17000170, is leased from EgyptAir Express.
