Flights to Cairo

Discover the beauty of ancient Egypt

Have you always dreamed of looking a sphinx right in the eye? Book flights to Cairo and experience the world of the ancient Egyptians. Stroll around the Egyptian Museum or visit the historic Citadel. And Cairo also has a modern face: the minarets are interspersed with palm trees, art deco villas and a flashing neon skyline. You can also enjoy watching a wonderful sunset on the banks of the Nile. Cairo is astounding in every way!

Ancient Egypt

The Pyramids of Giza and the mysterious Sphinx are undoubtedly the main attraction of Cairo. The most famous is, of course, the Pyramid of Cheops, one of the 7 Wonders of the World. Would you like to stay at an extraordinary hotel? Book a night at the Mena House Oberoi. Situated very close to the Pyramids, this hotel offers unrivalled views of these iconic structures. Many celebrities have been here before you. Cairo is not just the ideal destination for a city trip, it is also the perfect starting point for a longer holiday in Egypt. Let yourself be surprised: book a flight to Cairo now!

Lifeblood of the city

The best place to shop in Cairo is the Khan el-Khalili souk. Here you’ll find oil lamps, fragrant herbs, gold jewellery and colourful clothes. Don’t be afraid to haggle — it's standard practice here. If you are looking to cool off from Cairo’s constantly hot weather, a cruise on the Nile is a must. Flowing straight through the city, the river is considered Cairo’s lifeblood. A short trip, an unforgettable dinner or even a multi-day cruise are all great ideas!
