There are bus services to Tunisia from Libya, and sometimes from Algeria (when the border is open). Cruise ships travel between Tunis and Spain, Italy and Egypt. There are no longhaul flights to Tunisia, but lots of shorthaul options. Airlines flying to Tunisia (Tunis unless otherwise stated) include:
  • Star Alliance - EgyptAir, Lufthansa, SAS (Monastir only), Swiss (Monastir only), Turkish
  • Oneworld - British Airways, Royal Jordanian
  • Sky Team - Air Europa, Air France, Alitalia
  • Other Selected - Tunisair, some European low cost airlines (both Tunis & Monastir), most North African airlines, some Middle Eastern airlines

TIP On a Oneworld Explorer around the world fare, Tunisia is included in Europe.

TIP Fares to Tunisia from Europe hubs are generally low.

TIP Longhaul fares from Tunisia are markedly lower than from Western Europe, particularly in business and first class.
