Flights between Heathrow and Luxor have been resumed by Egyptair with a weekly Boeing 737-800 service offering 24 Business Class seats and 120 in Economy, plus full on-board service including free meals, drinks and individual screens for entertainment in both classes.
Egyptian Tourism UK director Rasha Azaizi welcomed the development, saying: “We are delighted Egyptair will be resuming these flights, providing access to Luxor’s array of beautiful business hotels and opportunities for relaxing on the beach resorts at Hurghada and the world Red Sea Riviera.”
As well as Egyptair, carriers currently flying to Egypt include British Airways (Heathrow – Cairo), easyjet (Gatwick – Hurgharda), Thomson (Gatwick – Marsa Alam and Manchester – Hurgharda), and Thomas Cook Airlines (Gatwick and Manchester – Hurgharda).
Current Foreign and Commonwealth Office advice about travel to Egypt says areas along the Nile including Luxor and the Red Sea resorts of Sharm el Sheikh and Hurghada are not included in areas to which the FCO advises against all but essential travel.
Attention is now focused on when flights between the UK and Sharm el Sheikh, which stopped last November, might resume. Services from Germany and Turkey have restarted, and 11 fights from Italy to the destination are scheduled to take place this month.
