Airports & Airlines

Cairo, Alexandria and Sharm el-Sheikh receive numerous commercial international flights. Luxor receives many charter flights, but only one commercial one, easyJet from London Gatwick. Aswan, Hurghada and Marsa Alam also handle flights from overseas, but typically only charters.

  • Cairo is the most common entry point. Many international flights arrive late at night, but this is in fact preferable, as city traffic is lighter. The airport is served by all the major international carriers. Of note:
  • EgyptAir Member of Star Alliance. Tickets are cheap, and its international fleet is in good shape. No alcohol is served.

  • Jetairfly Low-cost carrier from Brussels.

  • Meridiana fly Flights from Milan.

  • Air Sinai From Tel Aviv. Buy tickets at the unmarked office at Ben Yehuda and Allenby. Run by EgyptAir.

  • Alexandria has become a viable alternate airport, especially for low-cost carriers:
  • Air Arabia Connects to cities around the Middle East and Milan.

  • flydubai Also serves Middle Eastern cities.

  • Sharm el-Sheikh is handy if you’ll be spending most of your time in Sinai and Jordan. A number of budget European airlines serve Sharm, but the eight-hour bus ride to Cairo can outweigh any savings.
