EasyJet will return to Tunisia for the first time since 2015 with flights from London Gatwick (LGW) to Enfidha-Hammamet International Airport (NBE), twice weekly from 2 May 2020.
The Tunisian airport serves the popular holiday resort region near Sousse, which experienced a terrorist attack in June 2015, killing 38 people. After the attack, EasyJet and other European airlines ceased services to the area as the U.K. Foreign Office warned against all but essential travel to Tunisia. Launch fares on the resumed route are available from £52 return.
Tunisia’s geographic location in Northern Africa means the region enjoys warm weather year-round, which has been an attractive option for U.K. travellers especially during the cold Northern winters. TUI Airways returned to Tunisia in 2018, now offering year-round flights from Gatwick, Manchester (MAN) and Birmingham (BHX) to Enfidha as well as seasonal services from numerous other U.K. airports, with a new service from London Stansted from May 2020.
The now-defunct Thomas Cook had been a dominant player between the U.K. and Tunisia.
EasyJet also announced additional new routes for the summer 2020 season, including:
- London Gatwick (LGW) to Tirana (TIR)
- Belfast (BFS) to Dalaman (DLM)
- Edinburgh (EDI) to Gibraltar (GIB) and Catania (CAT)
- Glasgow (GLA) to Barcelona (BCN), Dalaman (DLM) and Pula (PUY)
- Liverpool (LIV) to Antalya (AYT)
- Luton (LTN) to Verona (VRN) and Pula (PUY)
- Bristol (BRS) to Antalya (AYT)
