In just over 5 hours, flights to Cairo transport you to the edge of Africa’s and Middle East’s largest metropolis. The 14-mile journey to the downtown and Nile-side hotels is a memorable introduction to the all-day, all-night bustle of the city.
The Cairo part of your Egypt holiday should start with a visit to the Museum of Egyptian Antiquities, where the treasures of Tutankhamun and the mummies of the great pharaohs are displayed – alongside 12,000 other unique artefacts. The museum is close to Tahrir Square, where the modern history of this pivotal city unfolded in the revolution of 2011.
Cairo International Airport is northeast of the city, around 9.3 miles from the city’s business district. Take the air-conditioned shuttle bus (you can book in arrivals) or a fixed-rate taxi to negotiate Cairo’s lively traffic.
With outstanding service starting the minute you book, you can choose to fly with hand baggage only or pick a price including a 23kg checked baggage allowance and free seat selection 24 hours before you fly. On board our planes, you’ll find HEPA-filtered air, quality catering and a warm, uniquely British welcome.
