Some good airline news.

Post by Susue »

For Hurghada and Sharm residents.
Apparently Thomson is no longer a charter airline in and out of Sharm and Hurghada....they've become a scheduled airline.
So now... residents will be able to use them to fly out, without the usual '3 weeks only' rule.
In the old days I had to fly home out of Cairo, because of charter restrictions. I'm glad times have changed!

HL I'm sure they fly to Manchester....
but you're looking at the first week of the school holidays.... as we both know it's the worst possible time to try and get a flight!
Good luck!

We can't use Thomas Cook Christine, and looks like we can't use Thomsons at this rate!

Easyjet to Hurghada was the cheapest, and have you tried - momondo - you can change the dates around there - -

Hopefully with the new rules that have been put in place today the future disruptions should ease a little
A day without laughter is a day wasted! :lol: ;)

We flew home on Christmas day with Thompson and it was too Manchester. The problem is with their website. We saw a Thompson rep here and she sorted out the flight for us.
