« As Voyages » says will not let down Tunisia destination

Mr. Jean Pierre Mas, President of the French travel agencies group “Afat Voyages Selectour,” AS Voyages, said: “we will not turn our back on the Tunisian destination /…/ It could not be replaced by any other destination,” adding that the Group, which sent about 100,000 tourists to Tunisia in 2010, hopes to achieve this same figure in 2012.

The Group, a leading network of independent travel agencies in France with its more than 1,200 members, is holding its second annual congress, on December 1-4, 2011, in Monastir. According to Mr. Mas, the Group chose, since February 2011, to hold its congress in Tunisia as a token of “support to the Tunisian Revolution.”

According to the figures presented by AS Voyages, the number of French tourists sent by the Group to Tunisia dropped fell 54% during the first nine months of 2011, and 80% during the winter season, as a result of the exceptional conditions the country is going through.
