Thomson Airways have confirmed a flight from Sharm el-Sheikh will arrive in Bristol later today.
Thousands of holiday makers have been stranded at the resort after flights from Sharm el-Sheikh to the UK were initially suspended on Wednesday.
Downing Street revealed an "explosive device" may have caused a Russian plane to crash, killing 224 people on board, after it left Sharm el-Sheikh earlier in the week.
A flight is due to land at Bristol airport around 19:20 this evening (Oct 7).
We continue to work with the U.K. Government to try and finalise our flying programme for the following days and we will update accordingly when further information becomes available.
These flights will operate under special security measures mandated by the UK Government. Customers will not be able to bring any hold luggage with them on these flights. Only hand luggage can be brought on board and normal Thomson cabin baggage restrictions apply.
All hold luggage will be returned to customers under separate secure cover arranged by the UK Government.

The research by Visit Cornwall said the series had a significant influence on decisions to visit the county.
94% of those who took part in the survey said they wanted to visit the landscape and scenery showcased in the productions.
