Getting around by air

Burg al-Arab Airport, about 45km southwest of Alexandria, handles all international and domestic flights in and out of the city. Most services are to/from the Arabian Peninsula and North African destinations.

Smaller Nouzha Airport, 7km southeast, has been shut for renovation since 2011. When it reopens, it's likely that domestic flights will be re-routed there.
