Palmair has commenced flights to Tunisia from Exeter, marking the beginning of a series of new winter flights from the airport.
It was announced earlier this year that a series of Boeing 737 Palmair flights would commence to Tunisia and Fuerteventura for the period between November and March, although the airline has since agreed to introduce additional flights to Monastir in May, June and October next year.
Jamie Christon, Exeter Airport’s managing director, said the airport is "delighted" to be teaming with Palmair.
"We are very pleased to be working with this award winning operator and the start of this new series of flights to guaranteed winter sunshine destination seems to be indicator of better times ahead," he commented.
Founded in 1957, Palmair was voted Britain’s most popular short-haul airline in a poll last year by Holiday Which?, the third time it has received the accolade in the past decade.
Canadian Air recently announced that it will be resuming flights to Toronto from Exeter on May 19th.
