Demand from British expatriates in Egypt for more air services between the country and the UK is growing, it has been claimed.
According to the Globespan Group, the growth in the number of British expats living in Egypt in recent years means they are driving the development of new air routes, as carriers look to satisfy this increasing need.
Rick Green, chief executive of the Globespan Group, said: "More Brits are buying property in Egypt which, as a low-cost provider, helps us develop our route network planning and also as a leisure provider for the beach and culture market."
Globespan subsidiary flyglobespan has recently launched a new service from Glasgow to Sharm El Sheikh in Egypt.
Mr Green added: "Sharm El Sheikh is popular with Brits and Hurghada is becoming increasingly so."
People planning to emigrate to Egypt should ensure they have expatriate healthcare insurance before making the trip, to ensure they are fully covered in the event of an accident or injury while living in the country.
According to research from M&S Money on Britons looking at currency before planning their holidays, sales of the Egyptian pound increased by 20 per cent in the first quarter of 2009 compared to the same period in 2008.
