UAE, Tunisia continue flights, end row over women

Tunisia suspended flights to Tunis by Dubai-based Emirates airline on December 24 after the airline refused to carry Tunisian women.

According to UAE's Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation, the decision of flights resumption was made after holding security dialogues with and receiving adequate information from Tunisia, a move that eased the security concerns of the Emirates company.

United Arab Emirates (UAE) and Tunisia announced late Thursday, they would end the crisis banning Tunisian women that started two weeks ago and continue flights.


Tunisia said it had barred Emirates from operating in its country until the airline could find "a way to operate according to worldwide law and treaties". However, Tunisian authorities later stated that UAE officials acted on intelligence that female terrorists from Iraq or Syria could trick officials by using Tunisian passports for plotting attacks.

The agreement to resume flights stipulates that the Emirati airline must abide by a bilateral aviation accord signed in 2000, and a desire to "avoid any future incident that affects or harms the fraternal relations between the two brotherly nations", the Tunisian transport ministry said.

"We contacted our Tunisian brothers about security information that necessitated taking specific procedures", UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Anwar Gargash had then said on Twitter. We respect and appreciate the Tunisian women.
