Sharm El Sheikh, which hosts millions of tourists each year, is known to be one of the most visited cities of Egypt. If you are thinking of traveling to this city, which is also known as the "city of peace" because of the large number of International Peace Conferences hold in the city, you can fly to Sharm El Sheikh Airport. Sharm El Sheikh is located on the easternmost part of Egypt's Sinai Peninsula.

The most popular areas that you can visit in this city having a coastline on the Red Sea are the Soho Square, Old Market, Hay el Nour, Hadaba, Rowaysat and Montazah regions in addition to Nabq and Naama bays. With a small surface area and low population density, the city has very limited public transportation facilities.

If you want your travel to be more affordable, you can take advantage of minibuses that will take you to the airport. It is useful to say that this transportation option is not comfortable.

Minibus

You can reach the airport by using these minibuses departing from the city center. These vehicles take passengers to the area very close to the Terminal 1 in about fifteen minutes. However, their departure times can take up to twenty minutes under normal conditions because the driver waits until the vehicle is full of passengers. So, traveling with minibuses when there is no crowd may not be the right option.

The only public transportation option in Sharm El Sheikh is minibuses. There are two minibus routes in the city. Both routes pass through the Old Market. The first route pass through Hadaba, the second route moves in the direction of Nabq. Traveling by minibus is a very affordable option.

Taxi

The taxi is a comfortable option for your travel to the airport; moreover, it is much more economical compared to the other cities in Europe. Before getting on any taxi, we advise you to pay attention that the vehicle is blue and white and there is a taxi sign on it. As these are registered vehicles, they are safer than other taxis. In addition, you can also choose to use the hotel taxis. You may witness that the taximeters of many vehicles do not work. Some drivers may ask for higher fares. To prevent this, we advise you to agree with the taxi driver about the fare.

Car Rental

Car rental is another option you can choose for a comfortable travel. You can rent your car from the car rental office in the city or make an online reservation before your flight.
