Air Transport Command Routes

During World War II, the airport was used by the United States Army Air Force Twelfth Air Force during the Italian Campaign in 1943 as a headquarters and command control base. The following known units were assigned:

  • HQ, 87th Fighter Group, 22 November-14 December 1943
  • 3d Reconnaissance Group, 13 June-8 December 1943, F-4/F-5 Lightning
  • 5th Reconnaissance Group, 8 September-8 December 1943, F-4/F-5 Lightning

Once the combat units moved to Italy, Air Transport Command used the airport as a major transshipment hub for cargo, transiting aircraft and personnel. It functioned as a stopover en-route to Algiers airport or to Mellaha Field near Tripoli on the North African Cairo-Dakar transport route, Later, as the Allied forces advanced, it also flew personnel and cargo to Naples, Italy.

On May 7, 2002, EgyptAir Flight 843, a Boeing 737 from Cairo crashed 4 miles from Tunis-Carthage International Airport. 14 of the 62 people on board were killed.
