Tunisia’s first privately-owned airline is to re-launch its Manchester flights to the North African country following the easing of travel restrictions by both the UK and Tunisian Governments

Nouvelair has been operating charter and scheduled flights since 1989 with charter flights to the UK for much of this period, as well as being one of the largest schedule carriers between France and Tunisia.

With a fleet of 10 Airbus A320s, Nouvelair plans to operate two weekly services from Manchester to Tunis on Wednesdays and Sundays commencing Tuesday 29th March 2022 in time for the Easter holiday market.

It will be Manchester’s exclusive operator to Tunis, providing good connectivity to the region and the country’s key holiday resorts.

Karen Smart, Managing Director of Manchester Airport, said, “The return of Nouvelair to Manchester is terrific news for the 100,000 or so passengers in our catchment who travel to Tunisia each year and will increase choice available to those seeking some sunshine over Easter.”

Carl Denton, UK Sales Agent for Nouvelair, added, “After being restricted to a limited programme in 2021, we are very excited to restart operations again next year, with an expanded operation which will provide great access for holidays, business and most importantly to allow friends and families to reconnect with Tunisia once more.”

Seats will be available on the website with three price options, from a basic cabin baggage only option to fully flexible, bags and pre-seating included option.
