Nouvelair relaunches regular flights to Tunisia from Manchester from March 2022

Following the positive news of the relaxation of travel restrictions by both UK and Tunisian Governments, Nouvelair has decided to re-launch its regular flights from Manchester.

Flights were due to start in summer 2021 but did not commence due to the restrictions imposed by the UK Government.

Nouvelair, the first privately-owned Tunisian Airline, majority-owned by TTS Group, and involved in DMC and hotels in Tunisia, 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 plan to operate two weekly services from Manchester, on Wednesdays and Sundays.

All flights will operate to Tunis commencing Tuesday 29th March 2022 in order to offer flights for the Easter Holiday break.

Currently Nouvelair will be the exclusive operator to Tunis from Manchester, providing good connectivity to the region and the holiday resorts in Tunisia.

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 for 2022, with an expanded operation which will provide great access for holidays, business and most importantly to allow friends and families to reconnect with Tunisia again.”

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

Nouvelair will also provide seat capacity to tour operators, OTAs and travel agents as well as direct sales.
