UK Government to Re Instate Flights to Sharm-El-Sheikh, Egypt.

For some time now, since the 'Alleged' terrorist bomb bringing down the Russian airliner from Sharm-El-Sheikh, Egypt. Many countries imposed a no fly to the Egyptian Red Sea resort immediately after the unfortunate crash.  Since then, the Egyptian government have followed all recommendations from both UK and European countries to improve security at the airport. The 'Bombing' of the Russian Aircraft has never been proven by EUROPEAN aircrash investigations, only by an announcement from the Russian authorities. And the recent crash of another Russian passenger airliner, allegedly due to 'icing' begs the question of Russian airline maintenance and operating practices. This, however no way detracts from the loss of lives and devestated families wherever they are from in either incident. Since this time, several other countries have re instated direct flights to Sharm-El-Sheikh, including Germany, Italy, and other European countries. Yet still the British government uphold the no fly ban. With recent re opening of flights and travel to Tunisia, then it should also be the case for Sharm-El-Sheikh, which is another popular destination for many Brits, especially like myself, who love the resort for the excellent Scuba Diving in the protected Marine Park of Ras Mohhammed and surrounding areas.  After all the terrorism in Paris, London, Manchester Madrid etc, there has never been a call to ban travel to these places? Paris suffered multiple terror acts yet there has never been govt advice not to go there. The Airline industry and Egyptian govt have made significant improvements yet the ban is still in place. British People should be able to choose themselves if they would or would not go to a place, simple. If individuals feel there is a risk, they choose an alternative destination or use old fashioned 'Common Sense'. The only people penalised by this continued no fly ban is the Egyptian tourism industry and the British People. If Tunisia is now deamed safe by adding military presence in resort areas, then why not Sharm? I personally have never felt un-safe in the area and there is always armed police and military around to protect the resorts and tourists. Please help by signing this to try and get Boris Johnson as Foreign Secretary to overturn the travel ban to Sharm-El-Sheikh.
