A group of 49 representatives from tour operators and travel agencies in Slovenia and Serbia are slated to arrive in Djerba and Zarzis, Medenine Governorate, on Saturday for a prospecting visit, ahead of the upcoming summer season. This is part of a promotional programme for this destination that will continue unabated.
Local tourism delegate in Medenine governorate, Hichem Mahouachi, told TAP despite last Tuesday’s incident, the scheduled tourism programme will continue unhindered with the visit of 36 Polish agents from May 11 to 18. The travel agents will continue their tour between hotel units and tourist sites with the aim of increasing the influx of Polish tourists in the region, whose number has reached 44,000 for the 2022 season.
A delegation of Canadian journalists and a group of 13 Swiss travel agency representatives are also expected to visit the area on Sunday, as part of the same promotional campaign, Mahouachi added. All flights have maintained their regular schedules previously set, with up to 69 flights from various locations including France, Germany, Belgium, the Czech Republic, Bologna, Switzerland, Portugal, and Bulgaria landing at Djerba-Zarzis International Airport between May 10 and 13.
Sightseeting tours, both within and outside of the island, have also continued on their regular schedules in Dahar, Ksar Ghilane, and Gabes, with the participation of nearly 1,700 tourists staying on the island of Djerba, which is currently hosting 20,000 visitors.
