Monarch is cancelling all flight and holiday bookings to Sharm El-Sheikh for the foreseeable future.
With no indication from the Government as to when the airport will re-open to flights from the UK, the airline is cancelling all flight and holiday bookings for winter 2016/17.
There are currently also no plans for the destination to be part of the operator’s summer 2017 programme.
Customers who have existing flight and holiday bookings can re-book to an alternative Monarch destination, free of charge, or obtain a full refund.
Andrew Swaffield, group chief executive, commented: “Much hard work has been done by the UK and Egyptian Governments, along with the travel industry, to improve safety measures at Sharm El-Sheikh Airport and it is very disappointing that it remains closed. If and when the airport does reopen then we will assess whether we start flights and holidays again.”
