Holiday operators are continuing to fly holidaymakers to Sharm el-Shiekh and are reassuring custmers that all is well.
A spokesperson for Thomson Holidays said: “People should also take considerable reassurance from the fact that the resort of Sharm el Sheikh operates like a country in itself. It is run separately from the rest of the Egypt, benefits from having just one secure road into the resort, and enjoys an exceptionally low crime rate.”
“The safety of our customers is always our number one priority and we will continue to take a measured approach throughout, as the situation continues.”
The vast majority of holidaymakers returning home are reporting no signs of any trouble in the resort and it’s very much business-as-usual. Several tourists are reported as saying the atmosphere is more tense than usual and there is a higher police presence but little to be concerned about.Share
