Tunisia: over 1.4 million passengers in Tunis-Carthage Airport (four months)

The international airport of Tunis-Carthage recorded a significant increase of 52% in the flow of passengers from January to April, 2012.

Their number exceeded 1.4 million against nearly 964,000 passengers last year.

According to figures released Tuesday by the Office of Civil Aviation and Airports (OACA), nearly thousand travels (+28.4%) were recorded at the airport, during the same period.

The OACA announced a package of measures to improve the level of benefits provided to passengers and ensure the free flow of traffic in national airports, in view of the return of Tunisians abroad and the tourist season.

Thus, several working meeting of local facilitation committees, chaired by the commanders of each airport were held in order to reduce delays and alleviate the congestion.

These committees bring together all the stakeholders (Ministry of Tourism, Office of Tunisians Abroad, airlines, border police and customs).

In order to fight against some abuses committed by taxi drivers outside the Tunis-Carthage, airport OACA has prepared, in coordination with the Ministry of Transport, a project to regulate this activity.

The agency also said activities of national airports have posted an increase in recent weeks following the start of the Umrah season.

The Djerba-Zarzis airport recorded the transition of 158,000 passengers in the month of February against 130,000 in the same month in 2011.

This figure is expected to increase, according to OACA, following the pilgrimage to the Ghriba and the return of German and English tourists.
