Alexandria is a popular port city in Egypt, lying on the Mediterranean coast. If you’re visiting Egypt, it’s worth spending a few days exploring the region and you can also plan day trips to nearby destinations. Transportation from Borg El Arab Airport to Alexandria is possible either by taxi or bus; you can choose whichever option best suits your needs and matches your budget.
Taking a taxi from Borg El Arab Airport to Alexandria or pre-booking a personalised airport transfer is the most convenient option as you’ll reach your accommodation directly. The trip should take about 50 minutes depending on traffic conditions and the exact location you’re heading to; expect to pay approximately €5 (EGP 168) for a standard taxi and be prepared to negotiate if needed. The bus is an even cheaper alternative at €1.50 (EGP 50) per traveller, but there is no public transportation available at Borg El Arab Airport. Instead, you can use the shared shuttle bus, operated by Egypt Bus; the trip takes about 1 hour and you’ll be dropped off at Muharram Bek Bus Station, which is located about 5 km south of the city centre.Welcome Pickups offers meet and greet services and a friendly introduction to Alexandria at the same price as a regular taxi.
