The Luton-based UK carrier, EasyJet has expanded its operations beyond its European destinations and now also flies to the Egyptian scuba diving holiday resorts of Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada from London Gatwick. There are domestic UK flights to Gatwick available with EasyJet from several UK airports too.
Carrying more passengers than any other United Kingdom-based airline, operating domestic and international scheduled services on 500 routes between 118 European, North African, and West Asian airports. Ever since its foundation in 1995, EasyJet has seen rapid expansion, having grown through a combination of acquisitions and base openings fuelled by consumer demand for low-cost air travel.
Hurghada departures are on a Monday, Friday and Sunday. Sharm El Sheikh departures operate from London every day of the week except Fridays.
What perhaps used to be seen as a no-frills, low cost airline, is now seen as a step-up from other airlines operating in the same market, such as Ryanair. Moving away for the extreme low-cost image, Easy Jet has managed to set new standards for the low-cost travel world and build a solid and respected reputation. And while there are charges on board for drinks and food, but the seat pitch and legroom are above average, and the aircraft are modern, clean, and staffed with highly professional cabin crew.
For divers going on Egypt holidays for a scuba diving adventure, EasyJet are a sound choice. Baggage allowance of 20kgs is included in the price of your ticket (part of the cost of this is for baggage), and the baggage allowance can be shared between you and your buddy, as long as any single bag weighs no more than 32kgs and you are on the same booking. 23kgs is the ideal recommended maximum of each bag.
For additional allowance, EasyJet have an accommodating sports equipment policy which scuba divers will want to check before booking their scuba diving holidays in Egypt.
Each passenger is allowed a sporting goods baggage allowance, secured by paying a fee of £18.50* is charged per item per flight.
This increases the personal allowance to 32kgs. 32kgs is the maximum weight of any one bag permitted on the aircraft. For even more allowance, there are additional fees per kilogramme. Maximum allowance for any one passenger is 50kgs.
