EasyJet will resume scheduled flights out of Sharm el-Sheikh on Friday and operate six extra flights, the budget airline announced on Thursday.

All easyJet passenger flights from the UK to Sharm el Sheikh remain suspended until November 12.

“Following the decision by the UK Government to allow UK airlines to fly aircraft into Sharm el-Sheikh from tomorrow in order to repatriate customers, easyJet can confirm it plans to resume its scheduled flights tomorrow," an easyJet spokesman said.

“The airline also plans to operate six additional flights tomorrow from Sharm el-Sheikh in order to bring home all the customers who have been affected by the suspension of flying on 4 and 5 November."
