Dubai airline Emirates to stop flying to Tunisia

Dubai airline Emirates to stop flying to Tunisia

While the UAE said that "security information" had caused the original delays, and that the temporary ban had already been lifted, Tunisia's transport ministry said that the landing-ban would stay in place until the UAE was able to "operate flights in accordance with law and global agreements".

UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash, said on Twitter, "We met with our brothers in Tunisia about security procedures that have been imposed".

Tunisia suspended all flights of the Emirates Airlines on Sunday, a United Arab Emirates (UAE) owned airline, said the Tunisia Transport Ministry.

In response, Zeabi reportedly said the measure was "temporary and relating to security arrangements".

The officials of the Tunisian government said the UAE had barred the flying or transiting of Tunisian women through its territory. "They [Emirates Airlines staff] told me that a Tunisian woman under the age of 30, with a Tunisian passport, can't get on the Emirates flight", she said.
