What good news for Luxor's independent accommodation market (including me at Flats in Luxor www.flatsinluxor.co.uk) now a holiday to Egypt becomes much more afforable, there is plenty of cheap accommodation here, villas, flats and hotels. This will be a big help for students of Egyptology who would dearly love to spend a longer time here. Well done Easyjet EasyJet to start Gatwick flight to Luxor - www.travelweekly.co.uk: "Services will depart Gatwick twice a week, on Monday and Wednesday, with passengers bound for the Valley of the Kings and Nile cruises.
At present, only charter carriers serve Luxor. Thomson, Thomas Cook and Monarch each fly once a week from Gatwick, while charters also operate from Manchester, Birmingham and Bristol.
EasyJet’s flights will raise capacity sharply.
Its pricing, leading in at £127.81 return including tax, is likely to take business from existing carriers on the route.
