Flights from Edinburgh to Sharm El Sheikh will take off next year as TUI reintroduce the route at Scotland’s busiest airport.
The weekly service will be part of TUI’s winter 2020 programme and will operate every Monday with the first departure on 1 November 2020. The summer service will also operate on a Monday.
Gordon Dewar, Chief Executive of Edinburgh Airport said:
“It’s great to see Sharm El Sheikh return to the destination list at Scotland’s busiest airport and provide yet more choice for our passengers, something we always look to deliver.
“Sharm El Sheikh has long been a popular destination with holidaymakers and this year-round service with TUI will offer both winter and summer sun options for people. We look forward to working with TUI to make it a success.”
TUI UK&I’s Director of Aviation Planning, Karen Switzer said:
“Earlier this month TUI announced its winter 2020 and summer 2021 holiday programme which has since expanded with more destinations and added flights. We are delighted that the additional flights provide holidaymakers departing from our regional airports with even more choice when deciding where to go away. With additional flying capacity and more than 1,000 hotels already on sale for summer 2021 it gives those planning ahead the opportunity to choose the most suitable airport, destination and hotel.
“The customer is at the heart of everything we do and this additional growth to Sharm El Sheikh from Edinburgh demonstrates our continued commitment for people to discover their smile with us.”
