blueotwo bluehorizon 1000

Leading liveaboard specialists blue o two have announced the commencement of new direct flights to Marsa Alam, minimising transfer times to Port Ghalib to join their flagship vessel M/Y blue Horizon (pictured above) for its southern Red Sea itineraries.

Journey time is reduced by almost 4 hours as Port Ghalib is situated just a short 10-15 minute drive away from Marsa Alam airport. Deep south itineraries include the legendary St John's national park, Fury Shoal and the spectacular Elphinstone reef.

Direct flights into Marsa Alam will be offered from April 2018 onwards, initially from London Gatwick but subsequently from Birmingham, a great central airport with fantastic amenities, easily accessible from both the north and south of the UK.
