  • NEW Flights launched to Sharm El Sheikh from Cardiff

TUI, the world’s leading holiday company and the UK’s number one holiday provider, has announced its winter 2020 programme with the reintroduction of holidays to Sharm El Sheikh.  

The new flight to Sharm El Sheikh from Cardiff is now on sale with weekly flights operating on a Monday with the first flight departing on 2nd November 2020.    

RETURNING TO SHARM EL SHEIKH  

Famous for the glistening red sea and amazing sandy beaches, customers can expect high quality hotels and the year round sun the region is known for.  Four hotels including old favourites along the beautiful Red Sea coast are now on sale, with even more in the pipeline.   

The EXCLUSIVE 5T TUI Magic Life Sharm El Sheikh, is an old favourite, loved and enjoyed by customers who previously travelled back year after year.  The Magic Life concept resort is picture-perfect, overlooking the Straits of Tiran. There is really something for everyone at from a stylish spa, fitness gym, sporting activities and professional live entertainment. The all-inclusive beach resort has 3 swimming pools plus 4 restaurants offering delicious regional and international cuisine. 

The elegant EXCLUSIVE 5T Reef Oasis Blue Bay includes a beautiful private beach, a waterpark and a large outdoor infinity pool perfect for cooling down in the sun and observing the stunning views. The hotel has a fantastic location, not far from the famous Naama Bay. There is so much choice when it comes to eating out – from the onsite Italian restaurant to the pub bar which serves food 24 hours a day. 

TUI UK&I’s Director of Aviation Planning, Karen Switzer said: “Earlier this month TUI announced its winter 2020 and summer 2021 holiday programme which has since expanded with more destinations and added flights. We are delighted that the additional flights provide holidaymakers departing from our regional airports with even more choice when deciding where to go away. With additional flying capacity and more than 1,000 hotels already on sale for summer 2021 it gives those planning ahead the opportunity to choose the most suitable airport, destination and hotel.

“The customer is at the heart of everything we do and this additional growth to Sharm El Sheikh from Cardiff demonstrates our continued commitment for people to discover their smile with us.” 

Spencer Birns, Chief Commercial Officer at Cardiff Airport, said: “We are very pleased TUI has decided to bring Sharm El Sheikh back as a destination for customers in Wales. Our passengers love going to this part of Egypt and by TUI adding to the 25 holiday destinations served with direct flights from Cardiff, we are sure it will once again prove to be very popular.

This news comes in addition to TUI’s commitment last month to further invest in Cardiff by adding over 30,000 extra seats for summer 2020. I want to take this opportunity to thank TUI for continuing to support customers in Wales by offering a greater choice in flights from Cardiff.”
