British Airways has suspended all flights to Egyptian resort Sharm el-Sheikh “indefinitely” after a terrorist bomb brought down a Russian passenger plane.sharmmmAll 224 people on board the doomed Airbus A321 were killed when it was blown out of the sky above Sinai. No flights have operated between the UK and the Red Sea resort since the atrocity in November.

BA had previously only cancelled flights up until specific dates pending a change in Government advice.

But the airline has issued a statement which read: “The safety and security of our customers will always be our top priorities and we have suspended our flights from Gatwick to Sharm el-Sheikh indefinitely.

“Customers who hold bookings on any cancelled services for the coming winter season can claim a full refund or can use the money to cover a new booking with us for an alternative destination.”
