TUI returns to Sharm El Sheikh

Egypt’s top resort moved back into the international travel spotlight last week as TUI resumed flights to Sharm El Sheikh from Birmingham and Gatwick airports.

Flights from the UK were halted in November 2015 after a bomb attack on a Russian aircraft. The resort, at the bottom of the Shai Peninsula with 35km of coastline, year-round dry climate and the warm waters of the Red Sea, has 11 resorts in the TUI programme, with more hotel announcements said to be in the pipeline.

TUI says the destination is especially popular with couples and families looking to lap up the local culture while taking in the attractive scenery and with those seeking watersport activities such as scuba diving and snorkelling in the noted coral reefs.

UK & Ireland director of product and destination experience Mark Hall said: “We’re delighted to be back and featuring a destination that has proved a strong favourite with travellers.”

Birmingham Airport aviation director Tom Screen added: “Having the Sharm El Sheikh service resumed is great news for Midlands travellers. TUI has recognised demand for the destination, for both winter and summer.”
