Cairo has direct flights to and from most European countries and many countries worldwide. So it is a convenient hub for many tourists who wish to fly to Marsa Alam but who find either that there is no direct flight from their country or that the timetable for the direct flights is very limited or who simply prefer to travel business or first class on an upmarket national carrier rather than subject themselves to the sometimes arduous conditions of long haul charter flights.
Marsa Alam flights depart from terminal three, Cairo’s most recent terminal completed in 2009. It is also the arrival terminal for some international flights including Egypt Air, Lufthansa, LOT, Singapore Airways and Turkish Airlines.
But if you arrive at a different terminal don’t worry as there is a fast and efficient automated people mover linking terminals one and two with terminal three within five minutes ( see the video on the right hand side. )
Please always check any information on this website with your airline before making a booking.
Egypt Air flies from Cairo terminal 3 to Marsa Alam. The flight is scheduled to take 1 hour and 25 minutes and uses the 76 seat Embraer 170 purchased new in 2007.
As of 1 May 2013 to 27 March 2014 the flight schedule is as follows but please check with Egypt Air before booking.
