Tunisia prepares to open the way for international flights

Posted 12 June 2020 · Add Comment

Tunisia’s government has announced plans to resume commercial flights to the country and reopen its airspace, land and sea borders on 27 June.

The announcement follows an official inspection of new biosecurity measures at Tunis-Carthage International Airport  by the Minister of State for Transport and the Tourism minister last week.
The changes include enforced social distancing, contact-less interactions between passengers and staff, and routine cleaning. 
Currently,all flights to and from Tunisia are suspended with the exception of aircraft in a state of emergency, overflights, operations related to humanitarian aid, medical/humanitarian relief flights, and repatriation services (only for nationals and permanent residents of Tunisia).
According to Osprey’s intelligence service it is currently unclear whether a 14-day quarantine restriction will remain in place once commercial flights are resumed. However, the government has stated that it is in discussions with “all the countries we had direct flights with” and that a list of possible destinations available from 27 June will “be posted soon”.
Domestic flights resume in Tunisia tomorrow (June 12). Tunisair Express, a subsidiary of the flag carrier Tunisair, will lead the waywith scheduled flights between Tunis and Djerba twice a day and Tunis and Tozeur once a week. Further flights will gradually be reinstated. Mosques, cafes, and restaurants have also recently been reopened although the latter two are only permitted to operate a takeaway and delivery service. Most public transport services have also partially resumed their operations and individuals are required to wear face masks in public places and workplaces. 
Additionally, a nationwide curfew remains in effect between 2300 to 0500 local time, although this is likely to be eased as part of a broader relaxation of measures planned for 14 June.
