Thomson and First Choice have extended the cancellation of outbound flights to Tunisia until March 22, 2016.

The decision comes in response to the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s continued advice against all but essential travel to the country.

Customers affected by this announcement can either change their holiday to any destination currently on sale by the operator without incurring any fees, or receive a full refund.

Earlier this week Thomas Cook cancelled all bookings to Tunisia until February 13, 2016.
