Travellers in the north of England and Scotland can now take advantage of new Egyptair flights from Manchester to Cairo departing five days a week and offered by Discover Egypt.


The operator's director Philip Breckner said: “The new flight operates on Saturday, Sunday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday with a convenient departure time of 14:30 and return landing of 13:30, which allows for same day rail and road connections for holidaymakers all over the north of England and Scotland. We are certain that agents in the north will find this a great new way to promote the amazing holiday experiences Egypt offers to travellers looking for sun, sea as well as culture and amazing sights.”

 The company offers a range of packages to Egypt including Nile cruises, city stays and Red Sea beach holidays that can all be combined with a stay in Cairo. For example, it is currently offering a seven-night twin-centre package to Cairo and Sharm el Sheikh from £899 which includes flights from Manchester to Cairo, two nights at the Le Mercure Le Sphinx in Cairo and five nights at the Hilton Sharm Dreams in Sharm el Sheikh, both on a bed-and-breakfast basis plus transfers.

For clients looking to take a Nile cruise, the operator features a ‘Classic Egypt’ package that includes a night at Mercure Le Sphinx near the pyramids of Giza in Cairo, a seven-night full board Nile cruise on the five-star Viking Princess with ten guided excursions and three nights at Sonesta St George in Luxor. Prices lead in at £1,199 per person including flights, accommodation and transfers.
