Transportation to Cairo City Center from Airport

One of the most important cities in history, tourism and culture, Egypt's capital city, Cairo, is hosting millions of visitors each year. Access to the city center for visitors using the Cairo International Airport, the only airport in the city, is not so easy, unlike other world capitals that host visitors.

It is possible to get to the city center from the airport at Heliopolis, which is 30 kilometers far from the center of the city, only with private shuttles, rental cars and taxis. There are also municipal buses that provide access to metro lines.

Cairo Airport Shuttle Bus

Cairo is a city shaped by the Nile River, forming various peninsulas and islands. So there are a few centers of the city. The most important of the centers are the Giza district in the east of Nile, hosting the pyramids, Wasat Al Balad, and the island named Zamalek. All of these areas are 25 to 30 kilometers from the airport. The most commonly used vehicle on this route is the shuttle.

You can arrange a private shuttle for you by phoning 19970 at the airport or phoning the same number or online in advance. You can reach to Wasat Al Balad and Zamalek at the best prices with the vehicles of maximum of 7 people + 7 luggage or 10 people + 0 luggage capacity. For Giza, you need to pay a little more.

You can go to Ramses metro station by city bus number 111 which departs from Terminal 1 of Cairo International Airport and you can reach the city center and major centers from here by metro. However, city buses take half an hour to one and a half hours to get to the city due to traffic conditions and excessive number of bus stops.
