Thomas Cook will restart its flight and holiday program to Tunisia from February next year.
The program will start on February 13 and go on sale tomorrow (August 22), TTG reported.
It comes after the UK Foreign Office amended its travel advice for Tunisia on July 26, enabling holidaymakers to travel to most of the country, including the capital Tunis and popular tourist resorts such as Sousse.
Thomas Cook’s head of customer welfare, Carol McKenzie posted in a blog: “We’re starting in just a few resorts, mainly near to Hammamet, and only eight hotels, where we’re confident we can offer the high quality our customers expect.
“We benefit from having had a holiday program and resort team in place for our German, Belgian and French customers, whose governments did not recommend against travel to Tunisia.
“This means we can have confidence that our customers will be looked after with the same high standards – and have the same reassurance of our customer care – that they expect in all Thomas Cook destinations.
“Tunisia has been a popular tourist destination for decades. Thomas Cook first opened an office there in 1902 and in the fifties a thriving tourism industry emerged along its sandy Mediterranean coastline and cosmopolitan capital Tunis.”
