Thomas Cook cancels summer 2017 Sharm programme

In October the operator cancelled bookings for travel up to and including April 13.

 

Cook had “a small number of packages and flights available on its website” and the “handful” of customers who had booked will be offered alternative holidays, including trips to Hurghada.

 

Cook said the decision as to whether to resume trips to Sharm “ultimately rests with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office”, which has advised against flying to the airport since October 2015.

 

Chris Mottershead, managing director Thomas Cook UK & Ireland, explained the operator’s reasoning in a blog post.

 

Cook will continue to offer holidays to the “popular and growing” resort town of Hurghada on the Red Sea Riviera in Egypt.

 

Last month Monarch cancelled all flight and holiday bookings to Sharm "indefinitely".
