Even though it is not really long-haul AMC Aviation of Egypt will begin charter flights between Sharm El Sheikh and Dublin in the winter. I am not sure which aircraft they will use but they operate A310s, A300s and MD-83s.

There have been charter flights between DUB and Egypt before, (to Louxor?)
If I recall correctly Brittania were one operator here, there could have been others, but they dried up post 9/11, - doubtless due to unreasonable fears about "security" amongst potential holiday makers.

They're not false Dani, just happening later than we hoped. EI has expressed a wish to serve these and many other North American cities, but the obstacle is the Irish/US bilateral and the Irish government's insistence on tying capacity from Dublin to capacity from SNN. We expect this matter to be sorted out this year and hopefully, new US flights can begin next Summer.
