The Norwegian tour operator Amisol Travel has set up a direct route from Oslo to Sharm el Sheikh.
Egypt has made a return to low-cost airport Oslo Torp’s route map. The Norwegian tour operator Amisol Travel has set up a direct route to Sharm el Sheikh on the Egyptian Riviera from December 21, to operate charter flights throughout the winter until April 26 next year.
“This is gratifying news for all travellers in the Torp region,” declared the airport’s marketing and communications manager Tine Kleive-Mathisen.
“Egypt is a very exciting destination for those who want sun and warmth, for those interested in history and diving. For us, it is gratifying to have a variation in the offers also in winter, so this was very good news for us at Torp.”
The airport points out that Sharm has an average of three hours of sunshine more per day than the Canary Islands in the winter months, and it “has more myths and swimming to offer”.
Amisol, which also has a subsidiary in Denmark, will be organising excursions to the pyramids of Cairo, to Luxor and Aswan, to Mount Sinai and Ras Mohammed National Park on the southern tip of Sinai.
In the area around Sharm el Sheikh, customers will also be able to join desert and Bedouin visits, ride camels and drive quads through the sand.
“After a few years of absence from Torp, it’s a great joy to be back again. We have noted a lot of demand from our guests in the region and it is nice to finally be able to meet their wishes,” concluded Gunder Moe, general manager of Amisol.
