2. FLY TO MARSA ALAM VIA CAIRO WITH EGYPT AIR.

If you fly to Marsa Alam via Cairo with Egypt Air you might find you have quite a few hours or even a full day between your connecting flight during which you could visit some of Cairo's amazing sites - see the Cairo excursions page - please let the organizer know you need a specially tailored excursion for a short stop-over and give them your flight times.  Please check these with Egypt Air. If you are two or more it will be cheaper and quicker to connect with Steven's taxi service at just 210 euro one way.

For 2017 flights to Cairo from London please check out the following link and enter LHR (code for London Heathrow) as your outbound airport and CAI (Cairo) as your destination airport. Then separately check the flights from Cairo to Marsa Alam using the code CAI for Cairo and RMF for Marsa Alam.

For return flights to London via Cairo please first check your outbound flight and then you should be given the option to fill in the details for your return flight. 

Flights arrive and leave via the same Cairo terminal - number three.     

You would be well advised to book an overnight hotel close to Cairo airport.  Flights arrive and leave via the same Cairo terminal - number three.  London flights operate out of London Heathrow Terminal 3.       


3.  FLY TO HURGHADA BY CHARTER - THEN BY TAXI.

You can fly from London Gatwick or Manchester to Hurghada on the Red Sea and then take a taxi to Marsa Alam.  A limousine service provided by Seifein limousine costs 60 euro - see the trips by taxi page.  

This plan has some advantages besides the possibility of finding cheaper flight prices and travelling on different days. You can stop on route to visit the historic city of El Quseir - the oldest on the red sea with a wonderful Ottoman castle and also to do some shopping or you might  consider a two centre holiday - as while Marsa Alam is considered by many better for diving, snorkeling and relaxation,  Hurghada is great for shopping and night time entertainment and also has some nice beaches.   There is a special offer currently for a hotel only in Marsa Alam - see our special offers page - and you can find hotels in Hurghada through websites such as booking.com.   

Anyway, as of December 2016, these were the Easy Jet 
Thomas Cook Airlines and Thomson Airlines schedules between London Gatwick and Hurghada. Two airlines (Thomson and Thomas Cook Airlines) also provided flights from Manchester and flights were also available from Birmingham but only with Thomas Cook Airlines.   we've provided links here for flyers to check the airline websites for the most suitable dates for travel between London or Manchester or Birmingham and Hurghada.
