Tunisia will welcome more than 66,000 French this summer (+ 110% compared to the same time last year, according to the forecasts of the Syndicate of French Tour Operators (SETO) unveiled Tuesday, June 26, 2018 and reported by 20minutes.fr).
“I even think that we will reach 100,000 French customers, or more over the summer,” René-Marc Chikli, the president of Seto, was quoted as saying by the same source.
“Tunisia was for a long time the first destination of the French abroad, because it offered the best value for money.
The situation having calmed down on the spot, many passionate of this country want to return there and we followed them in this desire “, Pascal de Izaguirre, the CEO of TUI-France told the same source.
For René-Marc Chikli, this rekindling of passion for Tunisia is also explained by an awareness of the French: “They realized that no country could boast zero risk regarding the attacks. And that going to Tunisia was no more dangerous than going to France,” he said.
