Alreet,
Was just wondering how long the flight is on the following UK-Egypt routes:
NCL-SSH
GLA-SSH
MAN-LXR
MAN-SSH
LHR-CAI

Cheers

Well, SSH-MAN is 5:40. MAN-SSH is less I think, about 5 hours. I can't remember now.

When I last flew LHR-CAI, I flew BA (2x 744). The non-stop time was about 4 hours out and about 4.5 hours back.

Our route out was essentially over a part of Switzerland - had a great view of the Alps - over Venice, down the middle of the Adriatic, over Tirana, over/near some Greek islands, over Alexandria and down to CAI.

Next fly AMS-CAI on 8th June on a M11. Big grin Flight time should be a tad under that on LHR-CAI.

Hey Gkirk, the flights vary between 4-5 hours depending on the route and airline/aircraft. Its 5-6 hours on the return Egypt-UK flights

for example...
LHR-CAI: 4hrs 45mins (BA-B744), 4hr 50mins (MS-B777)
LHR-SSH: 5hrs 20mins (MS-A321)
LHR-LXR: 5hrs 5mins (MS-B777)
LHR-HBE(Alexandria): 4hrs 45mins (BA-A320)

I guess for flights from MAN, NCL, GLA, BRS, EMA, etc you'd add about 15-30 minutes.

Don't forget the all-important wind!

Don't forget that the times you stated are BLOCK TIMES - which include the flight time, taxi time, time for small delays, etc - and not the FLIGHT TIMES.

I know NCL-Cyprus is roughly 5 hours, so I was thinking that NCL-SSH might be around the 6-6.5 hour mark?

BY524B: SSH/NCL 18:10/22:05 (5hr 55mins) B752

Only 40 mins to turn around a 757?  Wow!  Wow!
Or does 2 BY 757s swapover in SSH?

Yeah I was kinda surprised but I think it's achievable. Though you're point about swapovers is possible considering Thursdays (and to a lesser extent Sundays) are 'British' days at SSH with BY being the biggest operator.

TCX take over the NCL flights to SSH this summer (TCX503K/L) with a later departure time of 12:55 and arriving back into NCL at 01:15. Is NCL a 24 hour airport?

Cheers Kirkie!

BTW, do you have any idea why GLA-SSH flights are being replaced by GLA-HRG flights this summer? Considering SSH is by far more popular than HRG with Brits so it seems like a strange move. Most regional airports will have their SSH flights extended to cover the summer in addition to new flights from BHX and CWL.

There's no way a 40 minute scheduled turnaround is achievable at SSH on a 757, especially on a Thursday. The airport and it's facilities are overstreched - we sechedule a 1 hr turnaround in Sharm but rarely do they manage to get it away in less than 1 hr 15 min. While you might get a quick turn somewhere like Palma, after a 5 hour + flight from the UK the plane will require a decent clean, and a lot of fuel, which will add to the turnaround - and thats before any ramp/terminal congestion is accounted for!

Due to NCL-SSH-NCL being shuch a long Flight Duty Period, I suspect Britannia may have "bent" the schedule to show a reduced turnaround time downroute so that the flight can legally be rostered as a round-trip within the CAA FTLs.

Gkirk, according to GLA's website SSH flights (by TCX) will not operate this summer, just HRG.


Crosswind, can you actually do that? i mean 'bend' the rules like that? Seems kinda dodgy..

Anyway I can imagine things get a little hectic on Thursdays. The terminal currently handles the number of passengers it was designed for and a second terminal is being built right now and should open in 2006.

I hear that Britannia crew operate to Egypt out and back in a day.. surely they aren't the only ones?
