Dovilė Zapkutė, a marketing project manager at Novaturas, told BNS that return flights to Vilnius would be operated from Enfidha Airport according to a schedule starting next Friday, July 3. The last remaining customers are to be flown back home on July 10.

Novaturas says that its customers who have already booked holidays in Tunisia will be given the option to rebook to other foreign resorts.

According to the tour operator, currently there are 210 tourists from Lithuania in Tunisia and 80 of them are in the town of Sousse, where the terror attack took place.

The Lithuanian Foreign Ministry has no information about Lithuanian casualties in Tunisia.

Thirty-eight people, mostly British tourists, were killed and tens more were injured when a gunman opened fire at a seaside hotel in Sousse, a popular resort for both Tunisians and Europeans.
