Getting to Egypt

There are a variety of good options for getting to Egypt, and good connections between Cairo and many European cities.

The national air carrier is Egypt Air. Most travelers come into Egypt through Cairo, although people are increasingly disembarking at Alexandria, Luxor, Aswan, Hurghada (Al-Ghardaka) and Sharm el-Shiekh. These airports are serviced by a number of smaller carriers and charter companies with direct connections to and from Europe.

Other connections from elsewhere in Africa and the Middle East include the bus from Israel via the Gulf of Aqaba or the southern edge of the Gaza Strip and ferries from Jordan, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
