You will note that Jet2 has steered wisely well clear of Egypt and Tunisia.

Only now we just see TUI after 4 years recommence packages to Sharm, and EZY I gather will also start flights again, but hey presto the Gulf and ME again erupts which could spill over once more with security issues.

Jet2 are not daft.

There are no UK charters to Luxor for a long time now - TUI UK stopped theirs.

The Arab Spring Egypt and Tunisia terror attacks killed off
Monarch along with the SSH shutdown after Metrojet crash

- The loss of their huge market share to Egypt was immense for MON.
