German tour operators started bringing hundreds of holidaymakers back from Egypt’s Sharm el-Sheikh Red Sea resort on Thursday, after Germany’s foreign office advised against travel to the entire Sinai Peninsula, Reuters has reported. Alltours said it would bring back 120 holidaymakers in Sharm el-Sheikh this evening, while TUI Deutschland and Thomas Cook Germany said they were organising travel back to Germany for its customers there. Another big German tour operator, DER, said it had booked a plane for Friday morning to bring back all 85 guests from its different tour operator brands that were in Sharm el-Sheikh.
