New for Thomson for summer 2010 is the Egyptian resort of Marsa Matruh on the Mediterranean coast. The launch of a new range of holidays in Egypt signals the continued success of Egypt as a non-euro destination ideally suited to providing a range of holiday experiences built with today’s customer firmly in mind.

Marsa Matruh stands some 149 miles west of Alexandria, along the shore of the Mediterranean Sea, on the main highway from the Delta to the Libyan border. The beachside town has been a favourite with the Egyptians for years, with families heading up there every summer to escape the hot desert temperatures. And, slowly, the rest of the world is beginning to follow suit, with Thomson amongst the first.

Not only does the destination boast some of the best beaches in Egypt - without the stiffening heat in the height of summer, it also provides a range of activities and entertainments from diving to explore a sunken u-boat, to exploring the local Egyptian shops and markets or heading off into the night to soak up the soundtrack of local street musicians.

Alex Loftus, Head of Product for short & mid haul and product development, says: “The addition of Marsa Matruh sees Thomson further develop its range of products in Egypt. With the introduction of a brand new 5 star resort on the Mediterranean coastline our 2010 Egypt offering is further expanded giving Thomson customers a more varied choice of holidays, all of which have been truly built with our customers in mind.”

Marsa Matruh is the setting for the BeachClub Collection Jaz Almaza and the Platinum Collection Jaz Oriental – both are 5 star all-inclusive luxury resorts with beachfront locations. Thomson offers seven night holidays in Egypt staying at the 5T Jaz Almaza in Marsa Matruh with prices starting from £549 per person based on seven nights and staying on an all inclusive board basis. Departing from May 2010 with new flight routes from both London Gatwick and Manchester.*
