Sharm El Sheikh Holidays Return with British Airways

As much anticipated since last August when the move was officially announced, finally the date is getting closer for British Airways’ to start servicing Sharm El Sheikh holidays once again with a new thrice-weekly direct non-stop services from Gatwick to Sharm El Sheikh from October 26, 2009.

This signifies a return for the airline’s colours to this popular Red Sea resort popular with tourists taking Egypt holidays. The new direct non-stop London Gatwick flights to Sharm El Sheikh holidays will be departing on Mondays, Thursdays and Saturdays.
As well as the new flights to Sharm El Sheikh, British Airways will also be adding The Maldives to its already extensive network, and as soon as by later this month another BA plane will start flying the new route that will take passengers to Maldives holidays. Richard Tams, British Airways’ head of UK & Ireland sales, said:

“These new routes will be great assets to the BA network and a real winner with customers. They are both perfect holiday destinations, known for their great beaches and fantastic diving. We’re particularly pleased to be serving a completely new destination, the Maldives, and returning to Sharm El Sheikh. We expect both routes to perform well.”

Holidays in Sharm El Sheikh have proved popular with tourist for years due to their promise of sun-filled days on the beach and spotting turtles on the coral reefs, as well as offering the ability to explore the desert by camel and spend the nights feasting on traditional Bedouin food and stargazing.

British Airways have a number of superb Sharm El Sheikh hotels - all with easy access to beautiful beaches along the Red Sea. The range of hotels in Sharm El Sheikh includes something for everyone ranging from 3 to 5*. Romantics can pamper themselves at the 4*+ Grand Rotana ideally located on the shores of Sharks Bay. The 4* all inclusive Hilton Sharks Bay Resort offers fun for the whole family, or for pure relaxation and a round of golf there is the 5* Maritim Jolie Ville Golf and Resort. A range of some of the best Egypt hotels can certainly be found at this beautiful beach resort, that is also one of the world’s top holiday destinations for scuba diving thanks to the abundance and variety of its beautiful marine life.

The new flights to Sharm El Sheikh holidays will be operated by Boeing 777 aircraft with a three-class configuration: World Traveller, World Traveller Plus and Club World.
