Airlines have announced that flights from Britain to Sharm al-Sheikh won’t be resumed until November 26 at the earliest, amid continuing security concerns at the Egyptian airport.
Thousands of Britons are stranded in the Red Sea resort, following the decision by the UK government to suspend air links after a Russian passenger jet crashed.
Investigators are understood to be 99 per cent sure that a noise picked up by the cockpit voice recorder in the final seconds of the flight was a bomb exploding on the plane.
EasyJet, Monarch, Thomson Airways and Thomas Cook Airlines extended the period for which they have cancelled outbound flights up to and including November 25.
No airlines are taking passengers from the UK directly to Sharm.
A Monarch spokesman said: ‘We recognize this is a very frustrating situation and apologize for the inconvenience this is causing our customers.’
British Airways said it will not operate flights up to November 23, adding that the situation is ‘under review’.
Flights to bring holidaymakers home resumed on Friday although tight security restrictions are limiting the number of services, meaning many passengers are being forced to remain at the resort.
