The 2010-11 Jasmine revolution has had a disastrous impact on Tunisian tourism especially from France

Given that 91MDT is £33M, and assuming the trend continues, we are looking at a loss of £45M to £50M for the year.
Not good, but surely not cause for panic either.
|Quoting Loadsheet (Reply 6):|
i fly around 10x per year to Tunis, mainly with Tunisair.
the staff is unfriendly, the existent IFE is never turned on, the seats are dirty, the entire "handling" from check in to arrival is not worth to call Tunisair an airline.
Their Frequent Flyer program is not worth to be mentioned. Even i signed up - it is even more hard to get any benefits than in Star Alliance. I.e.: I mentioned to receive my emails in english language. So far i received all emails in french. Only after replying that i cannot read this they answered in english. My request for changing the language to english has not been answered so far (waiting now for 4 years).
And we should not forget Tunis Airport. Although a small and more or less a convenient airport - the staff of Tunisair makes it a nightmare. Usually I travel with hand luggage only. It is not possible to check in 3 hours before - the signs on the check in counter are not true. Staff is unfriendly and absolutely not willing to assist.
There is only one positive point of Tunisair:
they are cheap. Booking in the morning for an evening departure Tunis to Frankfurt: I booked last week and paid EUR90 all in .....
I wish Tunisair will continue to exist only in one point of view: the cheap fares. for all other things: shut that airline down.
So far i have done no flight with Syphax - but i think i should give them a chance. I hope they will fly to my home city soon ...... then thanks for flying Tunisair .....

Let's just hope that Syphax will take most of TU aircraft

Tunis could be a good airport given its good infrastructure. Tunisair could have been a good little airline bringing tourists and VFR trafic to Tunisia whilst also being a connection point for people travelling to central Africa. Sadly Tunisair only started to look at the later only recently.
