How to get there
The airport and Heliopolis are well signposted from the city centre. From the city, head across the 6th October Bridge on to Salah Salem/Al-Orouba Road. This leads directly to Heliopolis where the airport is located. Cairo International Airport can also be reached via a link road from the Cairo Ring Road.
Public buses run to a number of destinations in the city from outside the terminals. Intercity connections link the airport with Alexandria.
A shuttle bus service connects the airport with Heliopolis and central Cairo (journey time: 45 minutes; fare: 35LE). It operates at half-hourly intervals and it is recommended to reserve in advance (tel: 19970).
Taxis to central Cairo are available from outside Arrivals (journey time: 30 minutes; fare: around 80LE). Haggling is recommended for cabs with no meter, while newer white taxis have meters.
There are short- and long-term parking facilities directly outside all terminals. In total, more than 3,600 spaces are available.
