Thomas Cook resumes flights to Tunisia

tunisia sidi bou said streetThomas Cook has resumed flights from the UK to Tunisia for the first time since 2015, when 30 Britons were killed in the Sousse beach attack.

Three full planes, each carrying 220 passengers, are flying to Enfidha this week after the Foreign and Commonwealth Office eased its travel advice.

Thirty-eight tourists, including 30 Britons, were killed in June 2015 when gunman Seifeddine Rezgui opened fire at the five-star Riu Imperial Marhaba Hotel.

Thomas Cook said its flight and holiday programme will begin with three weekly flights to Enfidha from Manchester, London Gatwick and Birmingham.

This will expand to include Glasgow from April and Newcastle and London Stansted from May.
