Air Travel In Egypt is Very nice once that you get on board.
You go through at least three security scanners and a real hassel to get through their security. Then you get to ride a bus out to the airplane on the runway. There is little thought concerning passenger comfort or convience throughout the entire process.
Once you get on board and in the air it is pretty nice.
It is interesting that their military also uses the commercial airports as well as their own.
The close up photos of aircraft on this page are not our photos and they are not available for your use.
The Cairo International Airport (IATA: CAI, ICAO: HECA) is the busiest airport in Egypt and is located to the north-east of the city around 15 km from the business area of the city.
Cairo International is the second busiest airport in Africa with over 65 airlines using the Cairo airport (including charter airlines) and 9 cargo airlines. With the assimilation of EgyptAir into Star Alliance in July 2008 the airport has the potential to be a major hub with its positioning between Africa, the Middle East and Europe. In 2008, the airport served 14,360,175 passengers and it is one of the top 100 airports in the world.
The airport handles both domestic and international flights, and is open 24 hours a day.
We suggest flying into Cairo and staying in one of their many fine hotels when touring the Egyptian Musium in Cairo and the ruins in the surrounding areas.
We have links on this page that will connect you with flights into Cairo and several of the best hotels in Cairo.
After getting a flight and a hotel we suggest asking your hotel concierge to arrange either a car or a tour of Cairo or the Cairo area. If you call their Concierge Services ahead of your arrival, all of this can be pre-arranged for you.
We do this all the time, when traveling in Egypt. It is safe and it works!!! We have never experienced a problem, doing it this way!
Therefore, we have placed links to Priceline.com on this page so you can arrange your flights into and out of Cairo; as well as your hotel, when visiting this area.
