Hope everyone had a great new year!
I am new to AS and I am trying to start my own airline. I chose Tunisia as a starting country thinking that it would be a great country for a starting airline(and for someone looking to learn AS). I leased 2 new aircraft and began operating point-2-point service within Tunisia(domestic flights), I currently don’t have any competitors. I was hoping that the Tunisian internal market would be big enough to support a few point-2-point lines however, I notice that it is not that big of a market. I only operate flights between Tunis (TUN) to Djerba (DJE) and Monastir (MIR). I tried the other cities within Tunisia but I literally got 0 bookings per flight(I am thinking that these will be better suited for a hub and spoke system.
My strategy was this: find very profitable domestic point-2-point routes. Milk them for money. The money made from these point-2-point flights would help support the expansion of a hub and spoke system based out of Tunis (TUN). However, I have been playing for a few days and so far, the demand appears to be too little for my offer.
I operate 2 A220-100s. I operate 4 daily flights to Djerba (DJE) and 7 daily flights to Monastir (MIR). I am currently attempting 2 experimental flights to Gafsa (GAF) and Sfax (SFA).
I was just curious to have some opinions on the domestic demand of Tunisia and perhaps people who played this country or still play it could also chip in.
