UK reportedly plans to lift its travel ban on Sharm El Sheikh as of February 2018

The UK reportedly plans on lifting its travel ban on Sharm El Sheikh as of February 2018, British tour operators told their Egyptian counterparts, unnamed industry sources tell Al Shorouk. According to the sources, 40 members of the House of Lords — the upper house of British parliament — have been lobbying the British government to lift the ban, saying that Egypt has carried through all the necessary security upgrades at the Sharm El Sheikh airport. The British companies also reportedly said they will be organizing more trips in the coming period to Egypt’s alternative destinations, including Hurghada, Luxor, and Marsa Alam, until the flight ban on Sharm El Sheikh is lifted.
