We love Egypt Air. The staff is so friendly and you get a full meal on every flight. We wish they were available in the USA. They are the best airline!

Flights from Cairo to Athens

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.

The bus has space for dozens of passengers, and it makes stops at the airport several times a day.
