easyJet keen to start flying to Tunisia again

easyJet is keen to restart flights to Tunisia after a four-year hiatus in the wake of the 2015 terror attacks. At the time, multiple European carriers stopped flying to the popular north African destination.

While he was not able to give exact dates for resuming Tunisian flights, easyJet Holidays chief executive, Garry Wilson told Travel Bulletin that the airline had meetings with Tunisian tourism industry leaders at WTM to find a way to work together. According to Travel Bulletin sources, the discussions between easyJet and Tunisia have been productive and encouraging.

Finding an open skies agreement to suit all stakeholders has been a major stumbling block for airlines. Factors such as delays caused by Brexit have stalled the ratification of an EU-Tunisia agreement, despite this agreement being signed at the end of 2017.

"We would love to fly to Tunisia again," Mr Wilson said.
