Leeds/Bradford to host new services to Egypt

Leeds/Bradford to host new services to EgyptLeeds/Bradford Airport is set to host new connections to the Egyptian holiday hotspot of Sharm el Sheikh.

Jet2 and Jet2holidays are set to offer the direct services, which will represent a first for Yorkshire.

Sharm el Sheikh is becoming increasingly popular among British travellers and the forthcoming launch will be the first time that a tour operator and airline have flown to the destination from the region.

The holiday packages are already on sale and the service will begin in February 2009.

Tony Hallwood, commercial and aviation development director at Leeds/Bradford, said: "Increasing the choice and scope of destinations available from Leeds Bradford is crucial to the continued success and prosperity of the airport.

"We have been working closely with Jet2.com and Jet2holidays for a long time to ensure that people in Yorkshire have a wide range of destinations available to them. This launch is testament to this long-standing partnership."

Travellers taking advantage of any of the Yorkshire hub’s services can begin their trip with a stay in one of its airport hotels.
