Tunisia bans UAE Emirates airline from landing in Tunis

BREAKING: Emirates Will STOP All Its Flights To Tunisia From Today

Emirates stops flying to Tunisia from today

The transport ministry said it had "decided to suspend" Emirates flights to Tunis "until the airline is able to find the appropriate solution to operate its flights in accordance with global law and agreements".

Emirates Airlines announced on Sunday that it will stop its flights between Tunis and Dubai starting Monday, December 25.

"We have contacted our Tunisian brothers about security information that necessitated taking specific and circumstantial measures", Gargash said on Twitter.

The Tunisian transport ministry issued a statement saying Emirates flights would be suspended "until the company finds an appropriate solution to operate its flights that follows global laws and treaties". "We highly value Tunisian women and respect them", he said, without elaborating.

On Friday, the Tunisian government added that it had asked the UAE ambassador to clarify what was happening and had been told that the measures were temporary and had already been lifted.

More than 8000 Tunisians are suspected to have fought with ISIL, hundreds of women among them.




The announcement came two days after Tunisian government officials said the UAE had banned Tunisian woman from flying to or transiting through its territory.

"When we arrived here, we found the situation really chaotic".

The build up to the suspended flights followed anger in Tunisia over repeated reports of Tunisian women being banned from boarding Emirate flights from Tunis to Dubai.

Another female would-be passenger said men and male children were allowed to board flights - but not women under 30. Is this logical? It's degrading.

The Emirates released a statement the same day that said the visas were restricted for the Tunisians.
