Flights to Cairo
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.
