Monarch has extended the cancellation of flights to Sharm el Sheikh for another three weeks in the wake of the Russian airliner bombing in October.

Flights were already cancelled up to January 6, but this has now been extended until January 24.

Many other airlines have already cancelled flights until next year.

The advice from both the Foreign Office remains unchanged and advises customers against all but essential air travel to Sharm El Sheikh Airport.

Monarch has taken this proactive decision to allow our customers to make alternative holiday plans as soon as possible. Customers who are affected by these cancellations are entitled to change a booking to a later date or rebook to another destination on the Monarch network. Customers can also request a credit note towards future travel or a refund.
