Lucky diver gets ticket to dive

LUCKY Marc Oliver Williams has got a ticket to dive after landing a sponsorship deal as part of a EasyJet promotion for its new flights to Sharm el Sheikh, Egypt from Manchester.
The airline has given Mr Williams a ticket that entitles him to free return trips to Sharm el Sheikh.
He will therefore be able to complete the 60 recorded dives required to gain a PADI Divemaster qualification.
Ali Gayward, easyJet's commercial manager, said: 'We're excited to be operating yet another new route from Manchester and what better way to celebrate making a top diving spot more accessible to the north-west than helping a local scuba diver to achieve his dream of becoming a dive professional?'
The airline is offering three weekly services to the popular Egyptian holiday destination from Manchester.
Andrew Harrison, the airport's commercial director, said Egypt's location outside the euro area means it is proving one of the most popular countries for holidaymakers.
