Directions for your taxi from Cairo airport

Cairo International airport (CAI) is the busiest airport in Egypt and is the main hub for both Nile Air and EgyptAir. The airport is located around 22 km from the city centre, so your journey shouldn’t take longer than 26 minutes in a Cairo airport taxi.

Once your driver has left the airport compound, they will take the left-side ramp onto the ring road. They will then take exit 21 to Mokattam and then follow the signs for 5th Settlement/90 St./Suez Rd. and merge onto El-Moshir Tantawy Axis. Your driver will then take the right exit toward Suez Road/Cairo Airport before entering the first roundabout. On the first roundabout, your driver will take the second exit and then the first exit on the second roundabout. After around 100m you will reach the third roundabout and your driver will take the 3rd exit. From here, your driver will take the local city centre roads to take you to your hotel.
