British Airways has frequent flights to Cairo, landing at Cairo International Airport, 14 miles north-east of Cairo's bustling centre. After your Cairo flights land head into Downtown Cairo and prepare yourself for the sights, smells and sounds of a charming but frenetic city. After flights to Cairo, stretch your legs around the medieval Khan El Khalili market to get an idea of Cairo's flavour. Or take a peaceful stroll around the more relaxed Coptic Cairo district.
After your Cairo flight lands, take the comfortable air-conditioned Shuttle Bus to one of several fixed Cairo areas, which you can book in Flights Arrivals. Faster, but more expensive, taxis operate on fixed prices to take you into Cairo and beyond. Journey times depend on Cairo's traffic, which can be heavy. Make sure you leave plenty of time to reach the airport from Downtown Cairo when catching return flights from Cairo.
Immerse yourself in ancient history after your Cairo flight arrives by visiting Cairo's extensive Egyptian Museum. View King Tutankhamen's gold as well as ancient tombs and well-preserved mummies. After flights to Cairo, sail on a wooden felucca boat down the River Nile, a tranquil way of getting to know Cairo. Head south of central Cairo to the astounding Pyramids of Giza, 4000 years old and worthy of their world-wonder status. Before return flights from Cairo, stock up on souvenirs at Cairo's legendary centuries-old Khan El Khalili market. Browse for carpets, beaten brassware and fragrant oils, before feasting on tasty koshari, Cairo's favourite street snack of lentils and onions.
