Top tips for finding cheap flights to Egypt

  • Enter your preferred departure airport and travel dates into the search form above to unlock the latest Egypt flight deals.
  • If you are wanting to visit the famous pyramids of Giza or the Great Sphinx of Giza, you'll need to Cairo Airport (CAI), which is about 30 miles from the airport. There are two ways to get from the airport to the pyramids. The most popular is by taxi. Catching a taxi is the quickest most direct way, and takes only 1 hour. You can catch the bus, which is cheaper, but you'll have to change buses on the route.
  • When looking to find cheap flights to Egypt from London, you'll find leaving from either London Stansted Airport (STN) or London Luton Airport (LTN), and arriving at Sharm El Sheikh International Airport (SSH) are the cheapest available deals. SSH is the third-busiest airport in Egypt, and is a hub for EygypAir and Air Cairo.
  • When looking for cheap flights to Egypt, if you are attending the spectacular globally visited, Abu Simbel Sun Festival, which is on the 21st of February and the 21st of October, each year, and celebrates King Ramses II’s ascension to the throne, remember to be flexible with your travel dates. Flying into Egypt on these dates sees a drastic increase in flight prices.
  • Egypt has several airports that provide onward connections to other destinations in the country. Cairo is the main hub offering flight connections to the rest of Egypt. If you are spending time on the Nile, think about flying into Luxor or Aswan, or travel to Hurghada if you want to explore Red Sea coast of Egypt.
  • If you are looking at flights to Egypt so you can indulge in some diving, consider booking flights into Sharm El Sheik International Airport (SSH) which is a short taxi ride away from the resorts in Sharm El Sheik. Alternatively, you can book a flight into the airport in Hurghada and get a ferry across to Sharm El Sheik.
  • For visitors wanting to spend time in the Nile Valley, there are two main cities with airports here – Luxor and Aswan. If you want to visit the Valley of the Kings, then the closest airport is Luxor International Airport (LXR), which serves as the main hub for visitors to this area. Once you have arrived at the airport you will need to travel overland to the Valley of the Kings.
  • Visas are required for British passport holders who want to travel to Egypt. Although you can get a visa when you arrive at the airport in Egypt, it is advisable to get one online or at an Egyptian consulate before you fly to avoid queuing at the airport. If you do buy a visa at the airport, you will need to pay for it in Sterling, US dollars or Euros. British nationals who are holidaying for less than 15 days in one of the resorts on the Gulf of Aqaba, such as Sharm El Sheikh or Dahab, will not need a visa.
  • It is better to buy Egyptian pounds once you have arrived in the country as you will get a better rate for them than you would do buying them outside. There are ATMs and bureau de change counters at the main airports where you can obtain some local currency to pay for your trip from the airport.

Service was superb and the flight experience overall was great

Service was superb and the flight experience overall was great

A good airline, but at checking in, they allocated seats for my wife, and I far away from each other, and to change them, they wanted a payment, such a bad policy, it leaves a bitter taste in the mouth All was good on the plane, good food, but the air hostess was abrupt and a bit rough dealing with the passengers, but one has to find excuses for staff working under pressure

Flight canceled and then “uncanceled” after I booked are placement. I had to pay for both a Turkish Air doesn’t admit their mistake

Better attitude training for staff at airport, better training for flight attendants, better food, don’t put us with all the crying babies that cried nonstop for 12 plus hours.

Crew announced boarding started and they asked passengers to form a queue. Actual boarding didn’t start and queue was not moving for around 40-50 mins. Very poor management.

Staff didnt want to work, had to get up to get food and ear plugs myself even after calling the attendant multiple times. Both bags were not recieved in Dubai, called the next day to confirm bags were recieved and had to go to airport to pick up the bags. Now coming back to LAX one bag made it and the other bag is still missing.

I found it okay. Did not think the food was that great. And the service could have been better. Seat was a little cramped. Delay getting to Istanbul made me rush all the way across the airport to get to the connection. This was a not good experience.

Leaving on time would have been a good start . Sat in plane while they cleaned around us . We got to Turkey raced to our next flight to see plane sitting at the gate 5 minutes before departure time to be told “ plane is gone “ while obviously it wasn’t . Showed them time on my phone before departure. Then “ gate is closed “ . Then he said “Instead of talking to me you need to go talk to someone else to get another flight “ . We booked business class no service waited in line to have to rebook same flight day later. Offered hotel room but wait for a bus to heard us to what I’m sure would have been cheap hotel. Opted for private cab and decent hotel at our own expense. Bad service at ever turn . NEVER TURKISH AIRLINES AGAIN !

I requested a special meal (kosher) several months ahead of the flight . It was listed on the Turkish air website that I had a kosher meal. In-flight, there was no kosher meal. I was not able to eat during the nearly 8-hour flight. There also was no kosher meal on the second leg of the trip. The flight attendants said there was nothing they could do. They had no idea why the kosher meal was not provided. Very bad meal service.

easy and perfect boarding; no change in scheduled flights. keep up the good work.

The seats were broken, crew didn’t really care about service, boarding was not priority for business class, my bags arrived last

Comfortable flight with decent legroom and good seats. The crew were helpful and courteous and managed well with the stressful boarding and the chaos that’s involved. The food was decent, more than expected from a short flight like this. The only reservation I have was that the crew allowed passengers to board With massive amounts of hand luggage which were piled up on the empty seats next to passengers and and it was a risk to all passengers in the case of turbulence or emergency landing. I’ve never seen this ever on any flights I have boarded with many other airlines.

Flight was supposed to take off Saturday at noon. Bumped for unknown reasons until 2 am, then 9 am, then noon, then we don’t know. Not weather related. Dismal and non existent customer service. No 24/7 relations. Couldn’t get my bag back to attempt to get on another flight until 5pm Saturday. Will never take this airline again!

Greater clarity in organizing line-ups for the various boarding groups would have made it easier for all. Due to the many children, the announcements could not be heard clearly enough, so a simplicity in organization would have helped.

I had a great experience with EGYPTAIR. They offered me to check in my handbag which made it very easy since I use a cane. Thank you to EGYPTAIR crew for making sure everyone is receiving the right services.

Cons: "The food was very poor and tasteless , too much bread and it was cold. The choices of movies was poor."
Cons: "Neither departure terminal nor gate was displaying in the application even while refreshing it continuously. The information was available in schiphol airport website 3.5 hours before take-off time."
Pros: "the business class seat setting of the new dreamliner the plane is brand new flight schedule was ok"
Cons: "crew must be better trained quality of food should be improved entertainment system should have richer content"
Pros: "Crew was very nice. Everything was lovely."
Cons: "It took a very long time to get my credit card processed for extra luggage. Then flight was delayed."
Cons: "It would be best if I wasn't losing my luggage regularly in this route"

Great flight. Left on time, not very crowded. Quiet and the right temperature.

No eye patches , socks given out for overnight flight! The snack on the short haul was a cube of chocolate! The seat was uncomfortable for a long haul - not enough cushioning!

+ Clean, modern plane. - Despite the cabin had only 50% occupancy I was cramped in a row with 2 other people. Almost all other rows had only 1 person. I would have expected the airline to offer assistance other than a flight attendant to tell people in the back of the plane to find available seats. Next time I will not purchase an upgraded seat and hope I get my personal row for free.

I paid a lot of money for seat selection and was miserable for flight duration

Lufthansa lost our luggage. After a lot of chasing on our part we got it back. The main problem is that there was no office in Bogota to help us outside of flighttimes. The customer service phone lines had no data on our luggage. I think Lufthansa need to invest in managing communications over lost luggage or this will end with everyone taking more luggage out of hold.

Very good service. One of my journey was by bus. But they advised by plane. Wrong information

It's good but not enough entertaining you have to have your iPad

No entertainment, no food or beverage included… Price like Lufthansa, “comfort and service” from Eurowings.

Plane was late taking off. Baggage was delayed over 2 hrs.

Nothing -they cancelled the flight with less than 12 hours notice

Delayed and then further delayed with no announcement made so that all the passengers (who were standing in the jetty) could hear. We stood there for well over 20 minutes. We were further delayed through weather but no one explained that to us until the pilot made an announcement when finally on board

easyJet need to ensure that whether pre-booking seats or not children aren’t split from their parents the crew spent the majority of boarding asking passengers to move to accommodate two families. Surely the system identifies minors on a booking !!!!! It was all very frustrating to watch and caused delays which I’m sure cost easyJet more in the long run rather that automatically allocating families with minors seats together automatically.

Not great! Rude staff in London and the worse baggage reclaim I’ve ever seen. Great staff in flight but doubt I’ll fly with them again

Staff had been really impolite at the boarding area and for both ways charged high extra fees without a reason. For the check-in luggage which was measured 3.5 kg and was confirmed by the stuff to cost 40 € , 60 Euros had been purchased from our credit card. When confronted staff did call us both liars and claimed to never have announced anything. Flight back , when not wanting to press a backpack in a measuring metal instead of hand measuring , staff got angry that one did not follow her order, which was than escalated by the team. Although carrying a baby anyways staff did not offer any help in the unreasonable process and than charged again extra money. Cabine crew has been friendly but this experience LL lead to not booking easy jet at all in the future. Check in process in Edinburgh anyways chaotic,to the family check-in and disabled check-in everybody else was guided for check in process, so people just getting in between each other, not possible to monitor your own stuff.

As you would expect from a budget airline Left and arrived on time, no frills, not even a glass of water offered But you get what you pay for

I had an emergency escape seat. The attendant gave the extrA briefing to my side of the aisle but didnt direct it at all to the other where my wife was sitting

Boarding great. Didn’t eat or drink so can not comment.

Total jobs worths over carry on bags, charged £96 extra for bags that were clearly hand luggage

3 hours delayed Don’t understand why when you have paid for ‘speedy boarding’ they call you forward to then make you stand fir another 20 minutes in a confined space before boarding the plane.

The pilot did everything possible to make up the 35 minute delay. His communications were honest, prompt and positive throughout.

It was truly amazing. I will do it again! Excellent!

Pre flight food options were not working and made the flight not enjoyable. Post experiences of British airways have been positive, but this is enough to stop me using British airways again

Flight cancelled and i was rebooked on delta. Delta business class is not the same as British

It was nice and smooth from boarding to landing. Flight crew was wonderful and very professional.

Boarding could be smoother. But the flight crew was excellence. Very professional, friendly and helpful.

The crew was great but we sat in the plane for over an hour before takeoff combined with a 4 hour delay on our previous flight caused us to miss planned scheduled meetings in Geneva.

Everything was fine except my screen wasn’t working and I was unable to watch any movies or TV. Staff tried 3 times to reboot it, without success.

Not as bad as from Newark to London ,but that doesn’t mean I will book with them again

Positive boarding experience, easy access to seat with plenty of luggage space

Too many passengers are bringing two large bags, neither fit under the seat so space is limited and the crew ask for many people to check bags
