Egypt-UK One-way With UK Charter Airline?

Fri Jan 13, 2006 9:28 am

Is it ever possible to book a one-way ticket on a UK charter airline from any Egyptian airport back to the UK?

Thomson usually allow you to book one way's from airports other than the UK.
Formerly alcregular, Why drive when you can fly?

Fantastic airline, reasonable aircraft & IFE, meals ok, seats a little tight, aisles narrow, but who cares when fares are incredible !!!!

Check out my recent posting on AUD$99 fares PERTH/LONDON GATWICK. it's about 24 hours including stops, so about AUD$4/hour (USD$3).

I doubt if there has even been a cheaper fare for 24 hours flying including stops, at least in the last 30 years !!!

nationality won't make any difference. What I think Rdwootty means is they might not be able to sell one ways back to UK to anyone !!!

Nationality can be a factor in who you can sell tickets to on charter flights, regulations are generally much more restrictive on charters (especially from countries like Egypt) with a view to protecting their national carrier.

Pearson,
Every tour operator will have a licensing manual which tells them who they can and can't sell tickets to for each route, and the rules may vary from company to company. If they don't have one-way seats available on the web, it may still be worth giving them a call and asking if its possible.

Pearson,

Sure is I did it just a couple of weeks ago (had to turn a 7 night hol into 5 unfortunately.

Go to redseaflights.com and search for one way. I flew Sharm-->LGW for £99 all in.

The carrier is Astraeus : www.flyastraeus.com

A word of advice - buy some food before you board the onboard food (whilst free) is circa 1990 charter airline vintage  Smile And the bar/soft drinks are to pay for!

Regards,

Alistair

Thanks, folks.  Smile

I rarely fly charter airlines but a one-way ticket from CAI to LON ordinarily costs about £170-190 all-in, which is perhaps £30-60 less than a return.
