Booming Tunisia shrugs off Arab Spring concerns

Tunisia appears to have shrugged off uncertainty caused by the Arab Spring by attracting more UK holidaymakers this summer.

UK visitor figures rose by more than 29% between January and August to 287,541 over the same period last year.

This was up 22.5% on 2010’s record-breaking tourism figures, according to the Tunisian National Tourist Office.

The number of British holidaymakers rose by more than a quarter in August to 55,329 over the same month in 2012, topping record 2010 visitor figures by 22%.

TNTO UK and Ireland director Wahida Jaiet said: “Tunisia has long been a popular destination with UK holidaymakers and these record-breaking figures are testament to our diverse and strong tourism offering.”

Jaiet voiced confidence that 2013 will be the country’s best year to date for inbound tourism.
