Direct flights from Newcastle International Airport to a popular winter destination are now up and running.

The Thomas Cook Airlines route to Hurghada in Egypt was announced earlier this year when the company’s two brand new Airbus A321 aircraft arrived at the airport.

Leon McQuaid, aviation development manager at Newcastle International Airport, said: “It’s great news that Thomas Cook has introduced Hurghada into its programme, operating the service weekly on one of its state-of-the-art A321s. The destination provides guaranteed sunshine and world-class diving in the spectacular Red Sea.”
