How to get to Sharm –

The travel restrictions have been liftet for the countries in Germany, Austria, Belgium, Italy, Norway, Poland, Turkey and Ukraine, but still for the UK divers remains a frustration in the non-availability of direct flights.
The big three British tour operators, Thomson, Thomas Cook and Monarch have cancelled all plans for Sharm during summer of 2017. They will restart their sales in september or november 2017. And we from Sunshine Divers and the Red Sea are hardly missing you, guys! But,

… there are some options for visiting Sharm for our lovely divers from the UK.

  • – Take EgyptAir form Heathrow via Cairo,
  • – Book Pegasus from Gatwick and Stanstead via Istanbul
  • – Go with Turkish Airways from Heathrow, Gatwick, Edinburgh and Manchester via Istanbul
  • Fly direct to Hurghada, which is not restricted in direct flights, and book daily flights between Hurhada and Sharm el Sheikh
  • take the ferry from Hurghada, la pespes, goes three times the week (sunday, tuesday and thursday, departure at 8.00 am, 40 USD)
