Some of Egypt's Airports
Egypt is served by four major international airports, Sharm el-Sheikh, Hurghada International, Cairo International, and Luxor. Sharma el-Sheikh is directly off the El-Salaam highway. However most arriving passengers will be transferred directly to their accommodation by prearranged transport offered by their hotel or travel operator. There is a public minibus from outside Arrivals that runs into Sharm El-Sheikh, but though the journey time is only 20 minutes the minibus usually won’t leave until it is full. Taxis are also available.
There are banking and currency exchange facilities available in the airport, and several restaurants and snack bars, as well as a newsagent/bookstore, souvenir shops and duty-free. Disabled facilities are basic.
Hurghada International serves the resort of Hurghada, located on Egypt’s Red Sea coast. There’s no information desk at the airport, and no regular public transport. Instead minibuses run the twenty-minute journey, leaving only when full. There is a taxi rank outside Arrivals; it’s advisable to agree a fare with the driver in advance. Bureaux de Change, ATMs and a bank are available within the airport and there is also a post office and internet services. Public telephones are available and there are cafes and bars, a restaurant and vending machines. The shopping is unusually good with over 40 retail outlets and bazaars. There is a left luggage facility, a lost property office, a mosque and a children’s playground. Again, disabled facilities are basic.
Cairo International Airport has information desks at Arrivals and Departures, and shuttle busses and an automated people mover link the terminals. Outside the airport, a shuttle bus service connects to Cairo in about 45 minutes and runs half hourly, while taxis are also available. There are banks and ATMs, a 24 hour post office and a range of shops, and wheelchairs are available on request, as well as disabled toilets. Passengers are advised to contact their airline before travelling to ensure their needs are met.
Luxor is a smaller airport just outside the town of Luxor. There is a regular bus service to the city ad taxis and limousines are also available.
