Egytair Manchester to Luxor Direct Flights.

Post by jcoote »

I have just read on tripadvisor that Egyptair are supposed to be starting to fly direct to Luxor from Manchester. Apparently, the poster was told this by a manager of The Steigenberger in Luxor. Has anyone heard or read anything about this recently? Thanks.

To quote what was said:
Good news just been informed by the manager of the Steigenberger that Egyptair are going to start flying direct from Manchester
It doesn't say whether it's Luxor or Cairo. To be honest I would be surprised if it was Luxor as Egyptair can't even fill a direct London flight in winter.

However Tommy Cook have confirmed direct flights from Brum and Gatters to Masa Alam.

Have you checked out the Egyptair website? Surely that would be the best place to find routes and timetables - not hearsay!

No, I have to admit that I haven't checked out the airline timetable etc., but only because I thought it might be a little early to see schedules for next October. I thought it might have been worth an ask on here as some people seem to be pretty clued up as to what's happening, or proposed to happen with regards to Luxor.

I checked it as soon as I read the post as I would love to be able to fly to Manchester, checked for May, June - Nothing. Not really surprised but it was worth a check.

I never met Bombay, although I was once privy to his sense of humour on this forum. I think his posts must have helped many. I always read them with interest.

Hi all, After a long absence from the site, I was just about to ask if there was anyone that knew if there were any airlines flying direct from Manchester to Luxor. I have read up till now the comments and was just wondering if there was any update info yet. Thanks Peeps.

Sorry Steve nothing on the horizon. The only direct flight from the UK is the direct Egyptair Monday flight from Heathrow.

Nope, still nothing....

I have a special birthday this year - so it's a week in Hurghada and a week on a Nile cruise.
We will get a few days in Luxor from the cruise as we don't plan on doing any excursions this time so will have a mooch around the city instead :)
