Tunisia is waiting for Russian tourists in the winter season, and by the next summer season the country hopes to expand its flight program with Russian tour operators.
At the moment, negotiations on the summer season are underway, while direct flights are already flying to Tunisia from Russia. This was told in the Tunisian tourism office.
Nowadays, Tunisian airlines continue to fly to Tunisia only from Moscow and St. Petersburg twice a week. “However, these flights are, of course, not enough to get a good volume of Russian tourists,” the Tunisia tourism office said.
The figures of arrivals also show this picture. Of the 6 million tourists accepted by Tunisia, the Russians accounted for about 10 thousand. The main reason is the lack of transportation.
At present time, it is known about the new plans of Tunisian carrier Nouvelair, with which the tour operators Grand Express and Express Tour cooperate. The start of the programs is scheduled from April 7. “We are also negotiating with a number of tour operators in order to launch charter chains of Russian airlines to Tunisia,” the tourism office said.
