TUI has announced that holidays to Sharm El Sheikh will be back on sale on November 7, with flights departing Bristol Airport from May 2020.
TUI’s service to the Egyptian resort town of Sharm El Sheikh gives customers more choice of winter sun and summer breaks. With the service, the UK holiday company will give customers an opportunity to return to the Red Sea resort. Resorts including TUI Magic Life Sharm El Sheikh and Reef Oasis Blue Bay on the Red Sea coast will be on sale, with more hotel announcements under way.
Located between the desert of the Sinai Peninsula and the Red Sea, Sharm el-Sheikh is known for its calm sandy beaches, clear waters and coral reefs. Naama Bay, with a palm tree-lined promenade, has several bars and restaurants for a relaxing break. The resort is also popular with those seeking water sport activities such as scuba diving and snorkelling among the coral reefs. Ras Muhammad National Park is a popular diving destination, with marine life around the Shark and Yolanda reefs and the Thistlegorm wreck.
Mark Hall, Director of Product and Destination Experience TUI UK & Ireland, said, ‘At TUI we’re committed to offering our customers an outstanding choice of holidays across the globe. Sharm el Sheikh was always a hugely popular destination and I am delighted to confirm that we are reintroducing the Egypt favourite to our summer 2020 programme.
In response to customer demand, our first flights will operate from Bristol in May 2020 and our resorts are all looking forward to welcoming our customers back with a smile.’
Nigel Scott, Business Development Director, Bristol Airport, said: ‘It shows the strength of demand in the region and TUI’s commitment to Bristol Airport reintroducing the Sharm El Sheikh flights next year. This destination will be a firm favourite with customers and again extends the choice available to customers.’
