Most members from the United Kingdom have reported that the flights to Hurghada have been hard to get, almost always fully booked, and quite expensive. Average plane fares from Gatwick Airport in London, as experienced by several members, are equal or a little less than £280. This is with different airlines offering different rates and add-ons. Flights from the Manchester Airport are reported to generally have higher rates, but may have a few airline operators offering prices close to the average rates in Gatwick.
There is much anticipation to be seen in the reduction of these rates and the increase in the availability of flights to Hurghada from the United Kingdom. The acquisition of EasyJet of GB Airways may offer some solution to this dilemma, but there is no concrete evidence yet to prove so. Currently, flights from Eastern Europe are much more affordable than the flights in the United Kingdom to Hurghada and vice versa.
