Flights from Cairo

Cairo International Airport

Located 14 miles from central Cairo, Cairo International Airport offers a wide range of domestic and international flights from Cairo. Air France, EgyptAir, Nile Air, and Signapore Air are a few of the companies that handle the hundreds of daily flights. As the airport is one of the busiest on the continent, getting a flight is sometimes difficult. If you need help, visit Orbitz.com, which gives you access to hundreds of flights departing from this airport.

Parking at the Airport

Cairo International Airport has nine parking areas and more than 3,000 parking spots. One of the largest parking areas is reserved for long-term parking, which is your best choice if you wish to leave Cairo for seven days or more. Parking in a short-term lot can cost up to twice as much because these lots charge by the hour.

Transportation and Cabs

The cabs handling trips to the airport are different from the cabs found in other countries. Instead of relying on a meter, the cab driver will suggest a price to drive you to the airport. You pay the fare upfront. You might prefer the airport shuttle bus, which makes eight stops around Cairo, including one downtown. The bus has space for dozens of passengers, and it makes stops at the airport several times a day.

Dining at Restaurants

McDonald's and Burger King are two of the well-known chains located at the airport. You can also find local chains such as Bill Bentley's, Hippo Bar and Grill, and Puro Gusto. As long as you have a few minutes to spare, you have time to grab something to eat. With so many flights from Cairo leaving daily, you can use Orbitz.com to ensure that you get a seat on the right one.
