Thomas Cook Takes off to Marsa Alam from Birmingham Airport

On Monday, the inaugural Thomas Cook Airlines flight to Marsa Alam in Egypt, departed from Birmingham Airport.

To celebrate passengers enjoyed fizz and breakfast before boarding, and a specially designed Egyptian Pyramid cake was cut to mark the departure to the brand new destination.

Following a surge in demand for holidays to Hurghada in Egypt, Thomas Cook has introduced Marsa Alam to offer customers even more choice for winter and summer sun. Marsa Alam’s balmy year-round temperatures range from the mid 20’s to low 30’s Celsius and the world famous Elphinstone reef make it perfect for those snorkelling and diving enthusiasts. Thomas Cook offers a choice of nine resort-based hotels along Marsa Alam’s long coastline, including the Nubian style SENTIDO Oriental Dream which has its own coral reef and private beach.
