Egypt is easily accessible by land as well as by air, but it advisable to take a flight to Egypt. The capital city of Cairo has direct scheduled flights from important cities like Dubai, London and New York, and a number of international airlines catering to the country’s airports.
Cairo International Airport is where most international Egypt flights will land. Located 15 kilometres away from the city centre, this is the busiest airport in the country. It also serves as a primary hub for EgyptAir and EgyptAir Express as well as several other airlines. Cairo is well-connected by other major international airlines such as Singapore Airlines, Etihad Airways, Lufthansa, Emirates, KLM (Koninklijke Luchtvaart Maatschappij N.V), and many more. Air tickets are widely available from Cairo to all the major cities of Middle East, Asia, Europe and Africa. Sharm el-Sheikh International Airport and Borg El Arab Airport in Alexandria are two other major airports in Egypt.
The months from July to August are considered low seasons, and will have cheaper airfares. The most expensive time to fly is spring and autumn, as well as Christmas and New Year, so budget travellers should avoid visiting Egypt during this time.
