Cairo International Airport

Cairo International Airport approximately 9 miles from the central business district. It is a huge airport with over 65 carriers, including EgyptAir that has its central hub there. There are four terminals, including one hall in Terminal 1 that is specifically for private jets. During the annual Islamic pilgrimage, Hajj, traffic into Cairo Airport skyrockets. This is due to the availability of low-cost connecting flights to Medina, which is closest to Mecca, where Hajj takes place. During this time a seasonal terminal is opened up to help facilitate the increased demand for flights.

Ground Transportation in Cairo

The airport shuttle bus leaves every half-hour and will cost between 25 to 105 LE (Cairo pounds), depending on how far you need to go. There are yellow taxis available but these generally do not have meters, so be sure to agree upon a fair price before you get in. The newer white taxis have meters, so the price will be tallied for you. Luxury travellers may opt for a limousine, which will cost between 50 and 375 LE. Car hires are available from companies like Avis, Europcar, Sixt, Hertz and Budget.

Weather in Cairo

Summers in Cairo can get to be really hot, with June and July registering average daily highs of 34°C. It does cool down considerably in winter, with December and January temperatures only getting up to 19 and 18°C, respectively. In summer, light clothing in breathable fabrics work best, and be sure to lather on the sunscreen. Egypt does not require women to wear head coverings or other traditional attire, but it is a good idea to be fairly conservative in your choice of clothing. January is the rainiest month, with showers almost daily. Be sure to bring an umbrella if you visit during that time.

What to Do in Cairo

Cairo is the closest metropolis to the Sphinx and to the Pyramids of Giza. The Pyramids are the last of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World in existence today. The Egyptian museum in Tahrir Square houses a plethora of ancient artefacts, especially Egyptian ones. Cairo Tower is a little off the beaten path, but it opens up the opportunity to see many of the major landmarks, such as the Pyramids and the Citadel, all at once. The best time to go is October to April, when the temperatures are not so high.

Cairo When to Go

The high season, from October to April, generally offers the mildest conditions. But the mildest temperatures still bring midday sun beating down, and winter nights can prove surprisingly chilly to those unaccustomed to desert extremes. When it does rain (though it’s unlikely), it’s usually in winter.

Weather-wise, the most challenging time to visit Cairo is summer, when temperatures soar and nights offer little respite. The low season runs from May to September, but July and August are the hottest months. Visitors that don’t mind a little warmth can find deals in May without suffering the full brunt of the summer heat. But don’t jump too quickly: Spring is also sandstorm season. Sweltering dusty winds blow up from the Sahara and make the city barely breathable.

Cairo has long-standing populations of major religious groups and past colonial powers, so it’s possible to find celebrations for most every major holiday. Islam, however, is the prevailing force here, and the month of Ramadan is one of the most pronounced Islamic holidays. It happens in July or August, and during this time, some shops and restaurants may stay closed during the daytime fast. After sundown, the city will erupt with feasts and celebrations that last into the early hours.
