Thomas Cook unveiled plans to run flights from UK to Egypt due to an increase in demand from British customers who see the country again as an attractive and safe holiday destination.

According to media statements released by Peter Fankhauser, CEO, Thomas Cook, the company aims to organise flights to Egypt as there is advice from the UK Foreign Office that travel is permitted to the country.

During previous years, Egypt has witnessed a slump in visitor numbers due to a series of unfortunate events that have been followed by a closure of UK airlines to the main Egyptian resort airport, Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport. In spite of political, financial and social turmoil, Egypt’s tourism sector started to show recovery, reflecting its resilience.
