More information about Cairo Airport

It was therefore expanded several times in the 1950s and 1960s.

Even in recent years further building work has been necessary. The new Terminal 3 was opened in 2008. There are now plans to develop the infrastructure of the airport in order to accommodate passengers' needs.

In 2010, after modernisation measures had been completed, passengers voting for the rating agency Skytraxed, voted Cairo airport as one of three airports with the best improvements.

The airport, which after Johannesburg is Africa's second largest airport, is located about 20 km or 14 miles north-east of Cairo city centre. There is a public bus stop at Terminal 1. There are also a number of air-conditioned shuttle buses which run about every 30 minutes from Cairo city centre. Those planning to use a taxi to get to and from the airport should be aware that the old black and white taxis are mostly not metered meaning that a fare is negotiated with the driver. Newer taxis, such as the white-or yellow cars usually have a taximeter, are frequently air-conditioned and more comfortable.
