EasyJet to return to Tunisia for first time since 2015

EasyJet will fly to Tunisia next year for the first time since the Sousse terror attack in 2015, the Telegraph reports Thursday.

EasyJet, which revealed its return this week, will fly twice a week from Gatwick to Enfidha in the Gulf of Hammamet, an hour’s drive from Sousse, from May 2. 

Tourism has since picked up again after the Tunisian government increased security around popular destinations, and negative travel advice was lifted.

Major European tour operators start to return to Tunisia in 2018 with tourist numbers beginning to return to 2010 level, according to the Minister of Tourism and Handicrafts. The number of foreign visitors rose close to 45 % last year.

Revenues from tourism bounced to $1.36 billion in 2018 and Tunisia expects tourist arrivals to reach a record nine million in 2019, based on governmental figures.
