The Ministry of Transport will shortly begin the development of technical and in-depth studies to set the deadline for the construction of a new airport in the Greater Tunis area that would be operational, according to estimates, in seven or ten years, announced transport minister Anis Ghedira.

Speaking to reporters on Wednesday evening on the sidelines of a gala organised on the celebration of the 40th anniversary of the founding of the radio of the Monastir Radio, he added that the department has developed a study for 2 million dinars which has determined the actual needs of the air transport sector by 2040, specifying that parts of this study are being finalised.

He recalled that the ministry has developed studies on the places that could be used in the region of Greater Tunis for the realisation of a new airport which should not be far more than 30 km from the capital.
