All easyJet flights to and from Sharm el-Sheikh and the UK have been cancelled until January 6.
The action has been taken “to help provide some certainty for our customers’ travel arrangements over the Christmas period,” the budget airline said.
EasyJet said there have been “significant issues” associated with flying to and from Sharm el-Sheikh over the last few weeks.
UK airlines and operators had to fly more than 16,500 holidaymakers home following the downing of the Russian Metrojet Airbus which killed all 224 people on board and subsequent security issues at the Red Sea resort airport.
People booked to fly with easyJet to Sharm el-Sheikh are being offered flights to another destination, full refunds or a voucher for a future flight.
“For customers who would like to spend Christmas away, there are a number of locations that still have good availability – you could look to the Canaries, Cyprus, Malta or Morocco if you are looking for sunshine. Otherwise, we fly to most of Europe’s top city locations,” the airline said.
“If you haven’t booked directly through easyJet.com, please speak to the travel agency you have booked with for a refund of your flights,” easyJet added.
“We are sorry for the inconvenience this will obviously cause, but we hope that being clear with all our customers at this point helps you to manage your plans with more certainty.
“The situation is beyond our control and passenger safety will always be our number one priority.”
