EasyJet Launches Bristol Airport Flights to Tunisia

Bristol Airport passengers can now fly direct to Tunisia with easyJet after the airline launched a new flight route. Its first plane from Bristol to Enfidha-Hammamet took off this week (March 27).

According to the Mirror, research by loveholidays this month named Tunisia as the place to go if you’re looking for a cheap package holiday. Its comparison put the North African country in the top spot for being the most budget-friendly, with a seven-night break averaging £576 per person, including flights, hotels and transfers.

easyJet says its summer fares start from £29.99, and that the new service will operate twice a week with flights departing on Mondays and Fridays all year-round. The flight time looks to take around three and a quarter hours from Bristol.

According to Bristol Airport’s website, easyJet’s service to Enfidha is the only destination and operator listed under ‘Tunisia’. An easyJet spokesperson said: “Enfidha sits right in the centre of Sousse and Hammamet, which are two of the outstanding holiday destinations in Tunisia, boasting plenty to keep visitors occupied both on and off the beaches.

“The popular tourist hotspot, Hammamet, is known for its colourful nightlife, sunny weather and golden beaches.” Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, added: “[This] provides another year-round holiday destination for our customers in the South West.

“With great beaches, water sports, nightlife and a rich culture we are sure it will be a popular choice for customers throughout the year.”

Several airlines flew direct from Bristol Airport to Tunisia, until the tragic terrorist attack in Sousse in June 2015. TUI faced criticism in 2020 when it announced it planned to resume flights there.
