The UK government, on Friday, has permitted the resumption of flights from the Egyptian resort city, Sharm el-Sheikh. However, there would be ban on airlines carrying luggage in the cargo holds of planes.

Meanwhile, items that do not meet normal regulations for cabin luggage would be transported home the British government via courier.

This is following the earlier restriction by the UK on flights from Sharm el-Sheikh from entering the kingdom after an Airbus A321 airliner which took off from the Egyptian city crashed in the Sinai desert.

Presently, more than 20 flights and thousands of stranded British tourists in the Sharm el-Sheikh are expected to take off for London.

Also, Britain has advised against all but essential travel by air to and from the Egyptian Red Sea resort.

Also, European countries like Ireland, Germany, and the Netherlands have suspended flights to and from Sharm el-Sheikh, thereby leaving thousands of its tourist citizens stranded.
