Seven flights have been scheduled to evacuate stranded British tourists from Sharm el-Sheikh.
Britain suspended flights to the Red Sea resort on Wednesday after saying it feared a bomb may have brought down a Russian jet which crashed, killing 224 people.
The flights scheduled are:
- EasyJet is due to fly 445 passengers back on two planes from Sharm el-Sheikh to London Luton Airport on Saturday.
- Monarch also expects to operate two services to Manchester in northwest England.
- British Airways has one flight scheduled to land at London Gatwick.
- Thomas Cook expects to run two flights.
Eleven empty British airliners are on standby in Cyprus and might be used to fly home thousands of tourists stranded in Egypt's Sharm al-Sheikh, airport authorities in the Mediterranean island said on Saturday.
Eight flights carrying some 1,400 travellers returned to Britain on Friday after restrictions were lifted but tourists were only allowed to bring carry-on bags, with check-in bags due to be flown back later.
Monarch has cancelled all flights to and from Sharm until December 19 as the Government said direct returns would end after November 17.
