Red Sea Jet resumes service

Having just come from Sharm a month ago and realising with frustration that the ferry between Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh Port was not in service, I was very happy to read this today.

For all the local residents here, or even tourists, I have not previously heard of this decision so figure there are a great many others who are also unaware.

As per a notice from Mohamed Amin, the General Manager of the Red Sea Jet, he remarks that ferry services between Hurghada Port and Sharm el Sheikh will be operational from the 12th of January 2012. Finally! Is this an indication that things in Egypt will slowly return to normal? Bear in mind this ferry has been out of operations now for almost a year, having closed due to the 25th January revolution.

The schedule for the ferry is as follows:

    DAY               DEPART FROM HURGHADA                    DEPART FROM SHARM
SATURDAY                                    09:00                                                      17:00
MONDAY                                        04:00                                                      18:00
THURSDAY                                    09:00                                                      17:00

Rates per person for Egyptian Adult is 175 LE. Rates per Egyptian Child (3-12 years old) is 90 LE. Rates for Foreigner Adult is 250 LE. Rates per Foreigner child (3-12 years old) 150 LE.
