A charter flight from Debrecen to Tunisia starts again.

The first aircraft took off on Tuesday morning, 4 June 2024. The management of Debrecen International Airport is confident that they can increase passenger traffic by 10 percent this year compared to last year. The launch of a new flight to Monastir will contribute to this. Meanwhile, the passenger terminal is being expanded and is expected to be completed by mid-summer.

There were long queues at the airport early this morning for a flight to another continent. The charter season has begun, and after a ten-year break, holidaymakers can fly from Debrecen to Tunisia. According to the agency organising the trip, there has been a noticeable return to travel after the outbreak of the coronavirus epidemic. This is evidenced by the fact that 70% of seats on flights to Monastir are already sold out.

“In Tunisia, the range is constantly expanding, so it’s getting wider. Of course, there are eternal hits, without which there can be no offer in Tunisia, but every year new hotels are opening there,”  company manager of  Kartago Tours Zsófia Bocsák said.

The managers of Debrecen International Airport are confident that they will be able to register a number of passengers that exceeds last year’s figure. The introduction of a new charter flight will also serve this purpose. Together with the summer flights, a total of 12 destinations can be reached from Debrecen.

“We are expecting a growth of about 10 percent from this year, which, taking into account the passenger traffic of the past 5 months, we can probably achieve,” managing director of Debrecen International Airport Kft. Tamás Király said.

The HUF 300 million terminal extension, which started in March, will help to handle the growing passenger traffic more efficiently. László Papp, Mayor of Debrecen, visited the site on 4 June 2024 to learn more about the works.
