UK tour operators return to Tunisia

Thomas Cook, Thomson Fly and First Choice, will resume their flights to Tunisia early Mar-2011 following the decision last week to lift its warning about all non-essential trips to the country (Xinhua, 10-Feb-2011). The tour operators halted their activities since the establishment of the state of emergency in the North African country on 14-Jan-2011. On 08-Feb-2011, Tunisia's tourism minister Mehdi Haouas said that Mar-2011 and Apr-2011 will mark the resumption of normal tourist activities in the country.
