Stansted welcomes Tunisair

Tunisia’s flag carrier Tunisair has launched flights between Tunis and Stansted.

The country’s largest airline will operate twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays using an Airbus A319 aircraft.  The route is Stansted's first scheduled service to and from the capital.

Flights depart Stansted at 17:55 and arrive in Tunis at 20:55, while the return flight departs at 13:50 and arrives at Stansted at 16:15 (all times local).

The ancient city of Carthage in Tunis, and the Amphitheatre of El Jem near Sousse are among Tunisia's many historical attractions.

MAG's Airline Development Director, Mats Sigurdson, said: "New routes are always exciting developments and Tunisair's direct flight to Tunis offers even more choice to passengers. Tunisia offers something for everyone, whether it's a city break in the capital with its fascinating Roman archaeological sites or an all-inclusive break along the country’s famous Mediterranean coastline. We wish them much success with this new route from London Stansted."

Manchester Airports Group (MAG), owns and operates Stansted airport.

Tunisair Deputy Managing Director for the UK, Sofiene Ibn Abizid, said: “Tunisair is delighted to announce the launch of a new twice-weekly flight to Stansted, connecting Tunis with London, Cambridge, and the East of England. I’m sure our great value fares will prove popular with passengers, and we look forward to working with Stansted to make this new partnership a success”.

Tunisair is a long time resident of Heathrow and at present operates Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday a three-hour flight to Tunis.
