Tunis/Tunisia — Tunisair Express, a subsidiary of Tunisair national carrier, specialised in domestic flights, announced Sunday the resumption of its flights to Djerba every day of the week.
The resumption follows the lifting of restrictions due to the work on the runway of the Djerba-Zarzis airport.
The company invites passengers to consult its website www.tunisairexpress.net or travel agencies for more information on its flight schedules.
The project to upgrade the basic infrastructure of Djerba-Zarzis International Airport aims to better adapt the airport to the changing conditions of international air transport and to prepare it to receive large aircrafts, notably in view of the existence of air links connecting it to Russia and Eastern Europe.
This project, with an estimated cost of more than 40 million dinars, includes the fitting out of the airport’s airfield.
The airport was shut down on Mondays and Wednesdays of each week, from March 1 to April 22, 2021.
Works will continue until May 2021, without impacting the navigation flow from April 22 onwards, the airport management said.
