All Thomson flights will return from Sharm el-Sheikh by November 16, the airline has said.

Five flights will leave the airport between Friday and Monday, allowing "all but a small number" of Thomson passengers to return home on the final day of their trip.

Holidaymakers have faced difficulty getting home since flights to Sharm were stopped by the UK Goverment over fears a Russian jet which crashed shortly after taking off from the Red Sea resort was brought down by a bomb.

Customers will be contacted about any changes to their return flight.

All outbound Thomson flights to Sharm remain cancelled up to November 25.
