Stansted has gained an air link with Tunis ahead of the summer.
Flag carrier Tunisair is operating flights twice a week on Mondays and Thursdays using Airbus A319 aircraft.
The route is Stansted’s first scheduled service to and from the capital of the north African country.
The launch coincides with private Tunisian carrier Nouvelair restarting flights to Tunis from Gatwick.
Mats Sigurdson, airline development director at Stansted owner MAG, said: “New routes are always exciting developments and Tunisair’s direct flight to Tunis offers even more choice to passengers.
“Tunisia offers something for everyone, whether it’s a city break in the capital with its fascinating Roman archaeological sites or an all-inclusive break along the country’s famous Mediterranean coastline.”
Tunisair deputy managing director for the UK, Sofiene Ibn Abizid said: “Tunisair is delighted to announce the launch of a new twice-weekly flight to Stansted, connecting Tunis with London, Cambridge, and the east of England.
“I’m sure our great value fares will prove popular with passengers, and we look forward to working with Stansted to make this new partnership a success.”
