Tunisia: tourism is in trouble, worse than 2013 or even 2012

The main tourist indicators continued their deterioration in February 2015, recording even decline from the levels achieved in 2012 and 2013, said the Central Bank of Tunisia (BCT) in a statement released Thursday.

This has particularly affected the overall tourist bed-nights (-10.7% and -27% compared to the same month of 2014 and 2010 respectively), foreign tourist arrivals (-28.8% and -32.8%) and tourism receipts in foreign currency (-2.6% and + 0.2%).

Meanwhile, the air transport posted a 14.8% yoy drop in passenger traffic in January 2015, against an increase of 6.3% a year earlier, the number of passengers having dropped to 495 thousand people.
