UK. Thomas Cook to return to Tunisia after 3yrs.

Mon Feb 12, 2018 6:07 pm

After the terrible events of 2015 the British are set to return to the beaches. Sarting this week the airline is offering flights from Manchester Birmingham and Gatwick.

Tour operator TUI is waiting until May to return. Will give a very big boost to the local market.

I doubt the boost will be that big. The flights might be there, but the demand is still low. They're just testing the waters, that's all. Mass tourism will take time to grow again. Besides, Tunesia is far from the only place with beaches. The last few years the tourists have been going elsewhere and what does Tunesia have to offer to get them back?

A lot depends on the prices they can offer. Many people don’t particularly care where they go, as long as there’s sunshine and a cheap all inclusive deal!

Back in the time this thread was started only 3 flights per week were planned by Thomas Cook UK for S18, but now other cities and frequencies were added to reach a 10 or dozen at some time, and 2019 is selling with even more connections. TUI as well, and Jet2 is mulling. I agree with the guy above, the offer should be varied because all-inclusive formula is low-end tourism.
