The first Tunisian holiday sold to United Kingdom customers will begin on Tuesday, flying from Birmingham and landing in Enfidha.

Demand also went up the year before the Sousse attack.

The UK Government has now eased its travel advice to Tunisia, but still states that caution should be exercised.

As a result Thomas Cook resumed Tunisian holiday sales to United Kingdom customers and flight MT1800 set off from Birmingham to Hammamet/Enfidha at 6.05am today.

Chris Mottershead, managing director at Thomas Cook UK, said: "Tunisia has been a popular tourist destination for decades and with our first three flights sold out, there is an appetite from our customers".

Package holidays to Tunisia from the United Kingdom are set to resume on Tuesday as fears ease following the Sousse massacre.

The attack caused the UK Foreign Office to advise against travelling to Tunisia unless it was essential, though it has recently downgraded its warning.

Until past year it had advised against all but essential travel to the country.

The company did not stop selling trips to French, German and Belgian holidaymakers after the Sousse attack as their governments did not recommend that their citizens should not visit Tunisia.

Before the massacre, Tunisia was one of the most popular holiday destinations for British people.
