Russian plane crash: What

Can I travel to Sharm El Sheikh?

Q Please reveal about Sharm el Sheikh: will it be safe to go, and when will the ban on flights be raised?

Sharm el Sheikh happens to be the goal of terrorist attacks, and the international workplace (FCO) warns: “There is a top threat from terrorism in Egypt. Terrorists still plan and carry out assaults. Further attacks are most likely. Many terrorist assaults target the protection forces, however it is likely that foreign people, including tourists, will also be focused.” But the FCO thinks your danger for visitors to Sharm el Sheikh, and other traveler places in the nation, is tolerably low.

Routes consistently operate through the UNITED KINGDOM to Cairo and Hurghada, but Sharm el Sheikh is within the uncommon place of being deemed because of the British national as having insufficient security. It's thought that the Metrojet plane that crashed aided by the losing 224 lives after taking off from resort, destination St Petersburg, ended up being downed by a-bomb positioned on board at Sharm el Sheikh airport.

The ban ended up being placed on British airlines 10 months ago. After some rigorous and high priced work because of the Egyptian authorities on boosting airport safety, it really is possibly surprising that their Uk alternatives aren't however content with steps on country’s leading resort.

The international workplace still states: “We are liaising with travel agents so that they have the ability to resume flights and breaks in Sharm el Sheikh the moment proper protection arrangements are in spot.”
