Red Sea Holidays announces new flights following Thomas Cook Airlines collapse


Published on Thursday, October 10, 2019

Egypt specialist Red Sea Holidays has announced changes to its flight schedule to Hurghada this winter following the grounding of Thomas Cook Airlines, on which it had taken capacity.

From mid-October, a weekly charter will be provided by Fly Egypt from Gatwick, Birmingham and Manchester.

From mid-December until the end of April, the service will switch to European airline Enter Air.

“We were aware of the problems Thomas Cook were facing, and plans were already progressing with alternative airlines to secure additional aircraft,” said Red Sea Holidays MD Andrew Grant.

“Fly Egypt has the immediate capacity, operates a modern fleet of aircraft and allows us to quickly supplement the remaining operational flights out of the UK to Hurghada with three of our own.

“Enter Air flights beginning in mid-December will originate in the UK so flight departure times are more in line with the UK time zone.”

Fly Egypt will operate from mid-October on Mondays from Birmingham, Tuesdays from Manchester and from Gatwick on Fridays.

Enter Air will operate on Tuesdays from December 17 ex-Manchester, Thursdays from Birmingham and on Fridays from Gatwick.
