Emirates Airlines has announced an increase in the frequency of flights between Dubai and Tunis from six to seven a week, starting 30th October, 2017.
The additional Dubai – Tunis flight will be operated every Monday with an Emirates Boeing 777-300ER, to give passengers in Tunis greater access to Emirates’ global route network, particularly destinations in the Middle East, GCC, West Asia, Asia Pacific region and the US, with just one stop in Dubai.
The added frequency will also offer importers and exporters an additional 23 tonnes of cargo capacity in each direction. Popular goods carried between Tunis and Dubai include fruits and vegetables, fresh and frozen seafood, electronic equipment, truffles and dates.
Since October 2006, when the first service to Tunis was launched, Emirates has carried more than one million passengers and over 60,000 tonnes of cargo between the destinations. Globally, the airline employs more than 500 Tunisian nationals in a variety of roles across the group, including over 200 cabin crew.
