  • Emirates Will STOP All Its Flights To Tunisia From Today

The Tunisian transport ministry issued a statement saying Emirates flights would be suspended "until the company finds an appropriate solution to operate its flights that follows worldwide laws and treaties".

"The UAE authorities informed the Tunisian side about the reports and information on [terrorists'] plans to attack the UAE and stage a terror attack involving Tunisian women during the Christmas celebrations", a high-ranking source in the Tunisian government has confirmed Sputnik on Monday.

"In the UAE, we are proud of empowering women, we appreciate Tunisian women, and respect them".

Officials in Tunis have barred the carrier from touching down in the capital due after the airline stopped the country's women from flying to or transiting through the UAE at the weekend.

"Based on the higher travel advisory restriction issued by the United Arab Emirates government, airlines are instructed that all Tunisian female nationals will be denied entry to the UAE by API-UAE", read an internal Emirates Airline email.

The decision came after the authorities from the North African country asked Emirates to stop the service.

UAE Minister of State for Foreign Affairs Dr. Anwar Gargash tweeted on Sunday that an agreement was reached with Tunis over the security measure.

Relations between the two countries have been strained in the years following the 2011 Tunisian uprising with the UAE seen as attempting to try roll back the democratic gains of the Arab Spring revolutions.

As Tunisian passengers started to be turned away at the Emirati airports, many Tunisian social media users took to Twitter to denounce the "discriminatory" move.

Tunisia had expressed its understanding of the UAE concerns, he said.
