Thomson Airways has become the latest airline to extend its cancellation of flights to Sharm el-Sheikh, with services not scheduled to resume until March 23 at the earliest.

No flights have operated from the UK to Sharm since November 17 due to FCO advice following the downing of a Russian Metrojet aircraft after its departure from the resort.

Airlines and tour operators have been monitoring the situation closely since, and have been forced to extend cancellation periods due to continuing uncertainty and advice against all but essential travel.

EasyJet has confirmed it will not operate flights before February 29, while British Airways will not operate flights until after February 13 at the earliest.

Monarch last week extended its cancellation date from January 6 to January 24.
