Scottish budgets airline Flyglobespan has announced a new route between Glasgow and the Egyptian resort town of Hurghada, starting this November.

Tickets for the new service has already gone on sale, and start at £120 for one-way travel.

Flyglobespan chairman Tom Dalrymple said: "I’m confident that Hurghada, with its sandy beaches, great climate and world-class hotels, will be a great success, attracting a mix of families, couples and dive enthusiasts."

Gordon Dewar, managing director of Glasgow Airport, added that Egypt was becoming increasingly popular with Scottish holidaymakers, as the country’s "culture, history and landscape make it a quite unique holiday experience, and visitor numbers have been growing consistently".

This is the carrier’s second route to Egypt from Scotland – Flyglobespan’s service to Sharm El Sheikh was launched last year.

Thanks to its popularity, tickets for this flight have now been put on sale for winter 2008.
