    Sharm airport opens

    Restrictions on flights between the UK and Sharm el-Sheikh have been lifted after nearly four years.

    The Department for Transport announced that it has ended the ban due to improvements in security procedures at the Egyptian resort’s airport and close co-operation between the UK and Egypt on aviation security.

    Wonder when the liveaboards will move back again, if ever. Hurghada needs the competition IMHO

    Unlikely. Much more likely domestic pressure from tour operators in the UK. Red Sea packages are crazy profitable for package operators, and Sharm is an easier sell than Hurghada. Fantastic news, either way!

    As far from the sea as we could be, except when we can actually get in it.

    "Sharm Aiport opens"

    Sharm airport never closed even for security issues etc.
    Which is probably how we came to be taken through from the plebs side through to the posh airport bit by a transfer agent just to get a signature from the chief of Security
    "How did you get in here?"
    "by following this guy along several corridors".
    "Oh, OK, here's your signatures. Have a nice stay"
    "...are we human, or are we diver?"
