Holiday makers looking for a brand new winter break are in for a treat following nes Manchester Airport will operate the only direct flights to Egyptian city Luxor. The route is to be operated by holiday company TUI. 

TUI customers will be able to take advantage of these exclusive flights to take part in a brand-new River Nile cruise. The cruise will set sail in November 2024. 

The itinerary of the cruise will take in some of Egypt’s most famous ancient sights sailing between Luxor and Aswan with Egyptologists onboard for expert insights.  Whilst those who prefer to stay on dry land can select from a range of iconic hotels all perfectly positioned on the banks of the River Nile and most within walking distance of Luxor city centre – dubbed the greatest open-air museum in the world. Top picks include the Hilton Luxor with its infinity pool and views out across the Nile and the Jolie Ville Kings Island Resort with its unique island location.

 Richard Sofer, Commercial Director for TUI UK, said: “We’re delighted to have an incredible range of holidays on sale today with the low deposits and direct debit options we know are so important in helping customers plan and budget.  With exciting new additions in Egypt, a multitude of beach and city hotels available from the Canaries to the Caribbean - whatever kind of getaway Manchester Airport customers are after they’ll find it with TUI.”

 Robert Smith, Aviation Director at Manchester Airport, added: “It is fantastic to see the addition of a Luxor service as part of Tui’s Winter 2024 programme. It's a brand-new destination for Manchester Airport and one we are sure will prove extremely popular with passengers.
