Pegasus Airlines seeks to rebuild UK-Sharm El Sheikh connections

Pegasus Airlines is seeking to rebuild connections between Sharm El Sheikh and the UK.

Many flights between the key source market and the Egyptian destination are currently suspended following a series of terror attack.

However, offering year-round sunshine, sheltered sandy beaches and world-class diving, the Red Sea resort Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula has long been a favourite destination for British holidaymakers.

Favoured for being family friendly and affordable, particularly during the winter months, activities range from camel riding to water parks with coral reefs and clear waters attracting divers from around the world.

Pegasus Airlines is hoping to bridge the gap it seems in demand for travel.

Although direct flights from the UK are still unavailable, British travellers wishing to visit the resort can continue to fly with Pegasus Airlines from London Stansted via Istanbul, a route launched in September 2014.

Strong interest from the UK continues, with many tour operators calling for flights to be resumed as airlines from Europe including Belgium and Germany are flying once again.

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office does not advise against travel to the area.

Pegasus Airlines fly four times a week to Sharm El Sheikh via Istanbul.
