Flights resume for British travelers in Sharm el-Sheikh, but uncertainty remains

December 23, 2015

The increased security at Sharm el-Sheikh Airport turned into a mixed blessing for British vacationer Nicky Bull, one of tens of thousands whose travel plans became uncertain after Metrojet Flight 9268 crashed.

She felt safer but had to stand in line for hours before boarding a plane.

“At the airport today it was absolutely dreadful,” Bull said Friday after returning to the United Kingdom. “I appreciate all the extra security but they just couldn’t cope with it. … When we tried to go home on Wednesday the security was non-existent. Now it is as it should be but I don’t think they’ve got enough people to deal with it.”

Even worse was the uncertainty.

Bull said she supported her government’s decision to temporarily suspend flights from Egypt but said officials didn’t supply much information about what to do.
