Flights to Sharm el Sheikh
The resort of Sharm el Sheikh remains peaceful and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) for the resort itself has not changed. However the FCO has temporarily recommended against unnecessary travel by air to and from Sharm el Sheikh.
As a consequence, our airline partners have cancelled all flights to Sharm el Sheikh departing up to and including:
The FCO is working with the Egyptian authorities to enable regular flights between the UK and Sharm el Sheikh to resume as soon as possible, and flights departing after these dates are currently planned go ahead as normal.
Guests who were due to travel to Sharm el Sheikh up to and including Wednesday, 09 December 2015 (Thomson Airways) or Thursday, 10 December 2015 (Thomas Cook Airlines) will be offered an alternative holiday or a full refund of their holiday price.
Guests travelling to Sharm el Sheikh from Thursday, 10 December to Wednesday, 16 December 2015 inclusive will be able to amend their booking free of charge to any holiday departing by the end of April 2016.
In each case above, we will be contact guests directly or via their travel agent to advise the options that are available to them.
Our standard booking conditions will apply to all Sharm el Sheikh holidays departing outside this period.
Travel to other Egypt destinations
Tourist areas such as Hurghada, Makadi Bay, Marsa Alam, Cairo, Luxor, Aswan and Abu Simbel are all peaceful and operating normally. There is no Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO) advice against travel to these areas, and all flights are operating normally.
What do we do to protect our guests?
Your safety is our main concern. We work closely with the FCO, airlines, other tour operators, the Egyptian tourism ministry, and local authorities in resort to make sure that all aspects of your holiday are completely safe, and to plan appropriate steps should the FCO advice change.
