Cairo International Airport

Many people dream of taking a vacation to Cairo, and if you wait to look for flights to Cairo, you might find yourself overpaying for your flight. With Orbitz.com, you can book your domestic flight anytime you want without breaking your budget, since Orbitz offers deals and discounts that other sites can't offer. Located less than 10 miles from downtown, the Cairo International Airport handles most of the air traffic leaving from and arriving in the city.

Where to Go

After arriving in Cairo, you might feel a little confused about what to do next. The Cairo Transport Authority maintains a series of buses that stop at the airport, popular landmarks, and other areas in the city. Micro-buses and taxis are another option. Micro-buses are like small minivans that can hold several people. The small buses and taxis wait for travelers at the entrance to the terminal, providing inexpensive rides downtown.

Dust Storms and More

Dust storms are most common in the month of April and temperatures fluctuate depending on the season. If you visit in the summer, you should expect temperatures in the low 20s, with a high around 32 degrees Celsius. Winter temperatures can drop to single digits, with highs in the low teens.

Ancient Ruins on Display

Tourists flock to Cairo for the ancient ruins on display. Orbitz.com can give you access to a discount on some of these sites, such as Dahshur, Keops Pyramid, and Kefre. Even if you prefer indoor attractions, like the Egyptian Antiquities Museum, you can still find deals. After finding flights to Cairo, look for low prices on tickets to attractions you want to see on your trip.

Cairo When to Go

The high season, from October to April, generally offers the mildest conditions. But the mildest temperatures still bring midday sun beating down, and winter nights can prove surprisingly chilly to those unaccustomed to desert extremes. When it does rain (though it’s unlikely), it’s usually in winter.

Weather-wise, the most challenging time to visit Cairo is summer, when temperatures soar and nights offer little respite. The low season runs from May to September, but July and August are the hottest months. Visitors that don’t mind a little warmth can find deals in May without suffering the full brunt of the summer heat. But don’t jump too quickly: Spring is also sandstorm season. Sweltering dusty winds blow up from the Sahara and make the city barely breathable.

Cairo has long-standing populations of major religious groups and past colonial powers, so it’s possible to find celebrations for most every major holiday. Islam, however, is the prevailing force here, and the month of Ramadan is one of the most pronounced Islamic holidays. It happens in July or August, and during this time, some shops and restaurants may stay closed during the daytime fast. After sundown, the city will erupt with feasts and celebrations that last into the early hours.
