EASYJET HAVE ANNOUNCED A RETURN TO SHARM EL-SHEIKH
Written by News Team on 15th January 2020
UK Government lifted the ban on flights to the region last year
EasyJet is resuming flights to Egypt’s Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh for the first time in nearly five years, following the lifting of travel restrictions to the area.
The airline said two flights a week would be launched from Manchester Airport from June 7, and flights from London Gatwick will commence on September 30. There will also be flights to nearby Hurghada.
UK airlines were banned from flying to the region following the bombing of a Russian plane soon after take-off from Sharm el-Sheikh airport, killing all 224 people on board, in November 2015.
