SkyTeam carrier Air Europa is currently selling cheap tickets to Tunis. They are particularly cheap from Porto and Lisbon, but even their nonstop flight from Madrid is currently not expensive. Sadly, however, adding luggage would increase the price by roughly €70. Only SkyTeam Elite (or higher) members get to bring one free piece of luggage.
Tunisia has already reopened its borders for tourists. While Spain is currently on its green list, Portugal still remains on its orange list (meaning that a negative Coronavirus test is required). The lists are updated every two weeks.
The low price from Portugal has a downside – a long layover in Madrid. It is, however, so long (roughly 9 hours) that you could use that time for a quick sightseeing tour of Spain’s capital.
We expect further shakeups in the airline industry over the following months. Some services might be cancelled, aircraft changed or downgraded. The schedule we describe may very well change.
