Thomas Cook recommencing flights to Tunisia

This week three flights will take off for Tunisia

Thomas Cook, a tour operator company that handles travel and travel related financial services, is recommencing its flights to Tunisia for UK customers.

It’s the first time that Thomas Cook is starting the flight after the 2015 beach attack that killed 30 Britons.

Three planes are to take off this week for Tunisia and each of them will carry 220 passengers.

Citing the Tunisia attack, the Chief Executive Peter Fankhauser said that no ‘destination is 100 percent safe’ but his company is doing its best to assist the UK tourists visiting Tunisia and make them feel as comfortable as possible.

In an interview with BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, he said:

“It’s a modest programme and we offer 10 hotels which are really up to our standards.

“We are confident we have done everything we can do as a tour operator to make the holiday experience as nice as possible for our customers.

“People who were boarding our first flight said they were excited to go back.”
