Feldkirchen bei Graz, 22 Oct. 2008: The winter flight plan of Graz Airport comes into force this Sunday. “We have the best remedy for winter depression”, Mag. Gerhard Widmann, CEO of Graz Airport, said. “In addition to our numerous scheduled destinations we once again have plenty of direct flights to the sunny south this winter. This year we have added Luxor to our destinations, and together with Hurghada and Sharm el Sheikh we now have three holiday destinations in Egypt on offer.”

Luxor – the new flight destination:
Luxor is a new addition to the flight plan: The Austrian Airlines Group will be flying to the city on the Nile every Thursday from 06 November to 26 March. Luxor is well worth a visit as a spectacular treasure trove of ancient Egyptian art and civilisation: The Temple Complex of Karnak (those who have seen the magnificent film version of Agatha Christie’s `Death on the Nile´ with Peter Ustinov are sure to remember the impressive columned hall), the Temple of Luxor, the Colossus of Memnon, the Temple of Hatshepsut, the Valley of the Kings with the tomb of Tutankhamen and many other art treasures are in the immediate vicinity of the city.
Luxor is also the start of the highly popular, impressive and frequently breath-taking Nile cruises that follow the course of the River Nile up to Aswan.
