Tunisair (TU, Tunis) unions are protesting against a new bilateral air services agreement between Tunisia and Qatar that in their views unfairly benefits Qatar Airways (QR, Doha Hamad Int'l) putting Tunisair in competiton with the Gulf carrier. Tunis already serves as a stop for Qatar Airways’ daily service with A330-200s and A330-300s from Doha via Tunis to Casablanca Int'l but Qatar Airways does not currently have traffic rights between Tunisia and Morocco. It will be able to carry passengers between the two countries once it gets fifth freedom rights.
