TAV Operation Services, a subsidiary of TAV Airports, has won a tender to operate the advertisement areas at Tunis-Carthage Airport in Tunisia. TAV was awarded the four-year contract by the Tunisian Civil Aviation and Airports Authority (OACA) following a competitive tender process. The company will pay rent to OACA for the advertisements and has pledged to invest a further €300,000 (US$336,577) in the airport.
Bora İşbulan, general manager, operation services for TAV, said, “TAV Operation Services has taken one step further in accordance with the growth strategy to launch operations at the airports which are not operated by TAV. We undertook the operations of Air France/KLM Lounges at Frankfurt, Munich and Stuttgart airports on August 13, 2014. Today by taking that step in Tunisia, we have proved once more that we could export our know-how to anywhere around the globe. We are proud to become the operator of the commercial areas of Carthage Airport, one of the largest airports in Africa and the entrance gate of Tunisia.”
