Tunisia to attract more operators at upcoming WTM London
Tunisia aims to attract more tour operators at the upcoming WTM London, following news that Thomas Cook and other operators will return to the country from early 2018.
The UK Foreign Office changed its travel advice in July, paving the way for tour operators in that country to start selling holidays again to the destination.
The national carrier Tunisair, which never stopped flying between Tunisia and the UK, currently operates daily flights from London. Cook has resumed selling holidays, which will start from February 2018 featuring eight hotels near the resort of Hammamet.
Mounira Derbel Ben Cherifa, director of the Tunisian National Tourist Office in the UK, pointed out that thousands of tourists had continued to holiday in the North African country despite the travel bans.
The main message at WTM London will be that “Tunisia is open for business again”, she said.
The tourist board plans to work to reassure travellers and highlight Tunisia’s attractions, such as its wintersun credentials, wellbeing centres, sightseeing and niche markets. It has 1,150 kilometres of Mediterranean coastline, historical sites dating back thousands of years, almost 800 hotels catering for a range of budgets, and 10 internationally designed golf courses.
