TUNIS, August 03, 8:48 /ITAR-TASS/. Russian tourists failed to leave Tunisia over the cancelled flight of a local airline which was to depart from Enfida airport, a source in the air harbour told Itar-Tass.
In his words, the Tunisia Air flight from Tunisia’s capital, Tunis, to Russia’s capital, Moscow, was cancelled, because most passengers are clients of Russian tourist company Labyrinth which did not pay for the flight. On Saturday, the tourist company said it suspended its operation.
Employees of Russia’s consulate told Itar-Tass that they were looking into the incident specifying the number of Russian citizens who were forced to be delayed at the sea resort.
As many as 25 thousand clients of tour operator Labyrinth are vacationing in foreign countries, while this tourist company said about suspension of its operation on Saturday, chief press officer of the Russian union of tourism industry Irina Tyurina told Itar-Tass in Moscow. It is unclear how many people had bought tours, but failed to go on these tours.
Tourist operator Labyrinth works since 1995. The company offers direct flights to almost all popular tourist resorts, such as Crete, Rhodes, Kos, Corfu, Chalcidice, Athens, Peloponnesus.
