A friend of mine came to visit Egypt for the first time with his mum a few days ago. I will be writing about their experiences later on. However it’s worth nothing that the Cairo Airport website is pretty decent if you want to know latest arrivals and departures and the terminal gates.
A new airport is has been opened for a while and from New Cairo (5th Settlement) to Cairo airport is fantastic. It only takes about 20 minutes (door to door). You have to pay a 5LE charge to enter the airport premisses but after that it’s plain sailing (if you can find a decent parking space that is)
