Does EgyptAir fly Gatwick - Sharm el Sheikh??

On Wikipedia (yes, I know it's not always right!), it says on the Gatwick wiki page that EgyptAir serve Sharm el Sheikh. I went to the EgyptAir website and it says on its route map that they serve SSH direct from both LHR and LGW! But when trying to make a booking or checking the timetable on specific dates (I hate it when airline systems/websites only allow you to check specific dates rather than they tell you which dates they fly the route throughout the year) but it just comes up with an error message.

Any details if this route exists, when it starts, operates, aircraft etc. ?

Thanks

Yes EgyptAir are relaunching Sharm El-Sheikh to London (albeit to Gatwick rather than Heathrow this time). The airline joins Enter Air, TUIfly and easyJet on the route. Details in below link:

The airline is also operating some ad-hoc Cairo - Gatwick charter flights next month:
