Tunis, March 27 (MTI) – State secretary for economic diplomacy Levente Magyar said on Tuesday that he had discussed plans to launch regular direct flights between Hungary and Tunisia during his talks in Tunis.
He told MTI by phone that he had met several foreign ministry officials and held a lecture to local professionals about the experiences Hungary gained from merging the ministries of foreign economy and diplomacy.
The launch of regular direct flights will be required because Hungarian tourists now fill weekly five charter flights to Tunisia, up from the earlier weekly two, he said. The security situation justifies the increased demand, with the authorities in Tunisia keeping things under control and no terrorist attacks committed against tourists in the past one year, he added.
An official Tunisian delegation will travel to Budapest next week to finalise the agreement on the regular fright. Tunisair is expected to operate the service from next year, he added.
