EasyJet to resume flights to Sharm el-Sheikh

EasyJet will resume flights to the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheikh later this year.

The budget carrier will offer two flights a week from both Manchester from June 7 and from Gatwick from September 30.

The year-round services go on sale on Wednesday with fares starting from £99.99.

It will be the first time easyJet has flown to Sharm in five years and follows the FCO’s change in travel advice to the Red Sea destination in October last year.

Tui, Olympic Holidays and Red Sea Holidays put Sharm back on sale at the end of last year.

EasyJet has also extended its winter flights from Manchester to Hurghada to operate year-round three times a week on Mondays, Wednesdays and Sundays with the first flight departing on June 1.

EasyJet has added a three-times-a-week service from Manchester to Rome starting on June 7 and twice-weekly flights to Menorca with the first flight departing on June 4.

UK country manager, Ali Gayward, said passenger numbers have grown by more than 17% in the last year at Manchester after basing seven new aircraft at the airport.

“The resumption of services to Sharm el-Sheikh and year-round flights to Hurghada are both fantastic destinations for both summer and winter sun,” she said.

“With stunning beaches boasting crystal clear waters and great diving and marine life to explore, we know they will once again be a popular choice for our customers.”
