Take off to the Red Sea
You can now fly to Sharm El-Sheikh with us. An Egyptian town between the Sinai Desert and the Red Sea, it’s the perfect destination for sun seekers, beach lovers and water sports enthusiasts. Take a tour of the Sinai Desert by foot or SUV to be inspired by the stunning surroundings. Learn to dive in the Red Sea to discover shipwrecks and elaborate corals. There are luxury hotels along the coast, each with something special to offer, from private coral beaches to cooking food on volcanic rock. The first flight is on 3 November 2023 and you can book now, using only your Avios if you wish.
