Open skies policies can be infectious. Tunisia sees how traffic and tourism surged in neighboring Morocco after it opened its markets to LCCs. So now it wants to replicate the feat. Government officials plan aviation talks with the E.U. this fall and intend to adopt a phased-in open skies policy. State-controlled Tunisair, of which Air France/KLM owns 5%, is a potential victim, as are tour operators. The Paris-Tunis market in particular is likely to attract LCCs. Italy is also a big market.

Hmm...interesting does Tunis have enought to offer the EU?

TunisIA, not just the capital.

Lots of potential to Paris and numerous regional airports.

There are numerous articles on newspapers and on the internet about the open sky and it seems that the general opinion is that it will be harmful for the Toursim Industry. The hidden aganda behind all of this is the protection of Tunisair, Nouvelair and Sevenair. There were a lot of reports saying that OpenSky has harmed tourism in Morocco which is completely wrong.


Next flights : BRU-ZRH-CAI (LX)/ BRU-FCO-TLV (AZ)

My bad about the Tunisia....moderator can you fix the title?

I hope an LCCs does fly into Tunisia because right now it is expensive to go there. I am waiting to visit Monastir.

Tunisia joining open skies is a process that has started already in 2008, when formal negotiations started. The open skies agreement with Tunisia is negotiated as part of the Euromed programma, a cooperation between the EU and countries around the Mediterranean sea.

The EC has a page on the relations with Tunisia: http://ec.europa.eu/transport/air/in...ation/country_index/tunisia_en.htm

Indeed, for home carriers, open skies can be a threat. It can also be an opportnity, as it now allows the Tunisian carriers to fly to any destination in Europe and offer code shares on partner flights. Does anyone know how Royal Air Maroc is doing since the Open Skies?

Also, it can be an opportunity for Tunisian carriers, just like Jet4You did in Morocco.

For Tunisia, signing open skies and allowing LCCs in, can bring some traffic to Enfidha airport, which is now pretty empty.

But not really cheap though, not like FR or U2. The cheapest fare ORY-MIR I found was EUR 188 r/t, which is quite a normal price, not really LCC-like. (NTE-MIR around EUR 150). That's still cheaper than typical Tunisair flights, but not too cheap either - and only from France.
