Sharm el Sheikh flights cancelled into 2016

25 November 2015

peter-graves-airplane1 British Airways and EasyJet are extending their cancellation on flights to and from Sharm el Sheikh, until the New Year. There's been security alerts from the government, and the airlines aren't taking any chances.

BA have said that, "following discussions with the Government", they are cancelling all flights to and from Sharm until 14th January. EasyJet have said the same, cancelling flights until 6th January.

Serious business. If you have flights to Sharm booked with either of these companies, contact them to see what your options are. Customers on any cancelled flights can claim a full refund, or if you prefer, you can use the value of the ticket towards another flight. If you're determined to fly to Sharm, you can postpone your ticket for a later date.

British Airways said: "We are keeping flights which are scheduled to operate from Saturday January 16, 2016 under review. The safety and security of our customers will continue to be our top priorities in any decisions we may make."

EasyJet have said that this move is "to help provide some certainty for our customers’ travel arrangements over the Christmas period. We are sorry for the inconvenience this will obviously cause, but we hope that being clear with all our customers at this point helps you to manage your plans with more certainty."

"The situation is beyond our control and passenger safety will always be our number one priority."

To contact EasyJet, their customer services are open 7 days a week, 8am-8pm, at 0330 365 5000. For British Airways, call their customer service team at 0344 493 0787.
