Petition Lift the UK Travel Advisory on Direct Flights to Sharm-El-Sheikh
The UK is one of the only European nations refusing to lift its advisory against 'all but essential air travel to and from Sharm-El-Sheikh'. DIVE Magazine is calling for the restrictions placed on one of the UK's best-loved destinations, especially by divers, to be immediately rescinded.
