French tourism group FRAM will uphold its flights to the Tunisia destination in 2012, contrarily to rumours spread by some media and social networks on the group’s cancellation of travels to Tunisia, said FRAM-Tunisia CEO Tahar Saihi.
In a telephone conversation on Tuesday, Mr. Saihi told TAP news agency that “this is a false and baseless information which neither serves Tunisia’s interests nor FRAM’s.”
He confirmed that FRAM’s charter flights scheduled for 2012 will go forward, i.e., a total of about 73,000 seats (32,000 seats to Djerba and 41,000 one to Monastir), in addition to the regular flights to the Djerba, Tunis, Tozeur and Monastir destinations which remain open.
Mr. Saihi said his group has always re-invested its profits in Tunisia and it is confident to
overcome the present crisis and to reach its usual performance, i.e., about 100,000 customers a year.
“FRAM group has no interest in leaving Tunisia, a key destination of its production,” he insisted.
FRAM, on the scene in Tunisia since 1972, employs some 1,000 Tunisians.
