British Airways pulls out of Sharm el Sheikh

British Airways has announced that it will stop operating to Sharm el Sheikh later this year. The airline has pulled out of the thrice weekly Gatwick-Sharm route from 2 May based on the expected summer demand. “Based on current market conditions and current levels of expected demand for the summer, a Boeing 777 with 280 seats is not the right aircraft for Sharm-El-Sheikh,” the airline said in a statement. “Unfortunately we do not have a feasible shorthaul solution for this route for the summer and have taken the decision to suspend our flights.”
