TRAVEL ADVICE FOR EGYPT

By Elegant Resorts Travel Experts

Posted: 05 November 2015

We are closely monitoring the impact of the UK Government’s decision to temporarily cease UK flights operating to Sharm El Sheikh.

All our holidays are ATOL bonded, which means that should there be any disruption, we will make sure all our clients are looked after.

We have made contact with any clients that are affected by the latest Foreign & Commonwealth office advice and are doing our utmost to make alternative arrangements. For up to date information, clients should continue to monitor our website or call your travel consultant.

ABTA update - 5 November 2015
Further to the UK Government decision to temporarily delay UK flight departures from Sharm El Sheikh this evening while they assess security arrangements as a result of the recent aircraft incident in the North Sinai, the Foreign Secretary Phillip Hammond has announced this evening in a statement that the FCO travel advice for travel to Sharm El Sheikh by air changed.

The FCO has updated the travel advice for Egypt to reflect this change in travel advice - Summary - FCO advises against all but essential travel by air to or from Sharm El Sheikh Airport. The applicable extract is as follows:

Summary
There is a significant possibility that the crash was caused by an explosive device. As a precautionary measure, we are now advising against all but essential travel by air to or from Sharm El Sheikh. UK carriers will not take passengers directly to Sharm El Sheikh Airport.

We are working with the Egyptian authorities and air carriers to put special security measures in place which will permit travellers in Sharm El Sheikh to return by air, whether as scheduled at the end of their stay or before that if they wish. British nationals affected by this should contact their tour operators or carriers to arrange an orderly departure.

We are not raising the threat level in the resort. The above advice applies only to air travel to and from Sharm El Sheikh. Carriers will not be permitted to fly from Sharm El Sheikh until we are satisfied that it is safe for them to do so.

We have deployed consular staff to Sharm El Sheikh, who will be on hand at the airport and the resort, to assist British nationals. The full FCO travel advice for Egypt can be accessed via this link: https://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/egypt
