For Tunisia, security measures have been introduced by Luxair (in accordance with the instructions issued by the Directorate of Civil Aviation in Luxembourg).
- To facilitate implementation of these measures, we prefer travelers to use hard cases with integrated locks, or cases that allow a padlock or seal to be attached to prevent any illegal object being inserted into the luggage.
- We encourage our guests to use cases that are in good condition on which these seals can be placed, preventing any opening of more than 1 cm. If a guest is taking bags that cannot be fully secured with seals, the passenger must seal his luggage with plastic film before check-in at the destination, at the passenger’s own expense.
- In order to ensure that these measures are correctly implemented, we ask guests to follow the instructions received at the airport by the staff in charge. We must inform you that any refusal to cooperate with our local partners may result in the transport of luggage being denied.
