When to Fly

Peak Season: 

Most visitors book flights to Cairo from mid-October to May, which is known as the high season. During the peak season a number of festivals are hosted within Cairo. One such example is the Cairo International Jazz Festival, which usually takes place during March and includes jazz orchestras from United States, Spain, Lebanon, France and Germany, to name a few. Alongside the event, a number of activities are available for visitors to attend, including workshops, kids’ programs, master classes and film screenings.  

Off Season: 

The summer months (June-August) are low season and it may be easier to find cheap flights to Cairo. The combination of high temperatures – up to 35 degrees – and smog can be unpleasant for visitors. During Ramadan, the month of fasting, which is one of the most important parts of the Islamic calendar, many museums and tourist sites close early, many restaurants only open after sundown and the streets will be deserted. This should be taken into consideration when booking your flights, as you may not be able to make the most out of your trip if attractions you’d like to visit are closed. Ramadan takes place approximately mid-September to mid-October, however, it varies from year to year, so check the exact date before you plan your trip.

Shoulder Season: 

September is a pleasant time to book a flight. The weather starts to cool down slightly, with the temperature on average about 26 degrees Celsius and there are also fewer crowds.

Cairo climate

Getting around Cairo

There are taxis and limousines available at Cairo International Airport (CAI). Taxis operate on a flat-fare system and fees are the same as the limousine service.

The Cairo Airport Shuttle Bus serves central Cairo as well as Heliopolis, Giza and Nasr-City.

There are airport bus services too. Air-conditioned and non air-conditioned buses can be picked up from Terminal 1.

It’s not advisable to drive in Cairo. Lots of the city is walkable and taxis are cheap and plentiful. Ensure that you choose the taxi, don’t let it choose you. Don’t select one of the taxis parked outside expensive hotels or restaurants. It’s like having “tourist” written on your forehead and you’ll pay more than you need to.

The metro train system is efficient, punctual and clean. There are women-only carriages. You’ll see the “Women” signs above the platforms; the train carriage for women will be beside the signs.

Locals use microbuses to get around. This is an option best left to those who speak Arabic and those with a good knowledge of Cairo.
