Launch of the first scheduled flight from EuroAirport to Djerba

 

Coinciding with the beginning of the summer holidays, the airline TUNISAIR has launched its first scheduled service to Djerba with a weekly flight from EuroAirport Basel-Mulhouse-Freiburg.


On 2 July 2011 the TUNISAIR Airbus A320 (162 seats) took off at 19.10 hours from EuroAirport and landed in Djerba at 20.35 hours local time.


EuroAirport celebrated this first flight on Saturday, 2 July with a water baptism from the airport fire service and presented the 6-person Tunisian crew with gifts.
Also present were Youssef Kekli, Director TUNISAIR Zurich and Basel, Béchir Ben Sassi, Director TUNISAIR Switzerland and Abdennaceur Jerbi, Director Tunisian Tourist Board Zurich.


EuroAirport Management is delighted that the destination "Djerba la douce" as it is called by locals and Djerba enthusiasts is now available as a scheduled flight. Just over 2 flying hours away, Djerba is synonymous with beach fun, relaxation and trips to the desert.
