Cairo International (CAI) Airport

Cairo International CAI Airport Overview

Cairo International Airport CAI serves the Arab Republic of Egypt’s capital city Cairo and its surrounding areas.  It is the second-largest Airport on the African Continent, and is one of the fastest-growing airports in the Middle East, with a capacity of 22 million passengers a year. With only a 40 km distance to the Giza Pyramids, Cairo Airport is gateway to Egypt's great archeological sites - witness to its 7000-year history.

Cairo Airport is located in Heliopolis, 22 km northeast of the city center of Cairo, and accessible by a new 9 km airport access road (Salah Salem-Orouba Street) linking it to the Cairo Ring Road. 

With three long parallel runways and an annual estimate of 14 million passengers, Cairo International Airport is hub to Egypt Air, and is served by a myriad of domestic, international & charter airlines, offering direct and connecting flights to all points of the globe.
