Cairo - Mubasher: The United Kingdom is planning to lift the ban on travelling to Sharm El Sheikh by February 2018, El Shorouk reported on Monday citing unnamed tourism sources.

An alliance in the House of Lords supports the British government lifting the ban, according to the newspaper.

40 lords have asked the government to lift the ban, as they believe that Egypt is committed to all the necessary security measures in Sharm El Sheikh Airport, as per the international standards, and after most of other countries have resumed their flights to Egypt.

Some of the biggest British companies will soon recommence trips to a number of destinations in Egypt, including Hurghada, Luxor, and Marsa Alam.
