Holidaymakers can choose from over 25 resorts in the region including Thomas Cook's Sentido brand.

Excursions to explore Tunisia's Roman heritage including Carthage and El Djem will also be on offer to those wanting to immerse themselves in the country's history.

John Cunliffe, Leeds Bradford Airport's aviation and commercial director, said: "It's fantastic to see Enfidha as a destination from Leeds Bradford Airport.

"Tunisia is an increasingly popular destination and one we feel will be very popular with the people of Yorkshire.

"We look forward to welcoming Nouvelair to Leeds Bradford Airport on a weekly basis throughout the summer."

The flights will operate once a week, on a Tuesday between May 21 and September 24.
