Last Monday (30th October 2017), the inaugural Thomas Cook Airlines flight to Marsa Alam in Egypt, departed from Birmingham Airport.
To celebrate passengers enjoyed fizz and breakfast before boarding, and a specially designed Egyptian Pyramid cake was cut to mark the departure to the brand new destination.

Following a surge in demand for holidays to Hurghada in Egypt, Thomas Cook has introduced Marsa Alam to offer customers even more choice for winter and summer sun. Marsa Alam’s balmy year-round temperatures range from the mid 20’s to low 30’s Celsius and the world famous Elphinstone reef make it perfect for those snorkelling and diving enthusiasts. Thomas Cook offers a choice of nine resort-based hotels along Marsa Alam’s long coastline, including the Nubian style SENTIDO Oriental Dream which has its own coral reef and private beach.
