Airline scraps next summer's Tunisia flights and holidays too
Low cost airline and tour operator Jet2 has decided not to operate to Tunisia in summer 2016, besides axing its programme there for the rest of this year. The decision by Jet2.com and Jet2holidays heaps more misery on the country's beleaguered tourism industry following the recent Sousse terrorist attack. It serves as evidence that the process of restoring confidence will be lengthy, even if the UK Foreign & Commonwealth Office relaxes its advice that British travellers should avoid Tunisia unless their journeys are essential. Airline passengers will receive refunds. Package holiday customers can switch to other destinations without paying a fee. In a statement the company said: "We have been proactively calling all our holiday passengers to discuss their options with them. In the light of tho cancellation we have added more flights and holidays to our popular destinations to ensure we are offering the best possible choice of holidays."
