Flights to Egypt

Flights to Egypt are not expensive; there are some good deals on offer. Prices vary so it’s worth doing some research. The easy way is to Google it - type in - Flights to Egypt from (then the name of the city you will be flying from). Your flight bookings can be processed on the internet where it is easy and reliable to buy electronic flight tickets direct from airlines; your valid flight ticket is sent to your email address.

 

You have the option of flying into Cairo or Luxor and then connecting to Aswan.

Cairo: There are daily flights into Cairo from most major cities throughout the world and there are frequent daily flights connecting Cairo and Aswan.

Luxor: Luxor has an international airport with charter flights and Egypt Air scheduled flight connections with the UK and from most European countries. Connections between Luxor to Aswan are currently by road transfer or train; we will assist you with these arrangements when you make your booking.

 

 

Getting to Aswan

From Cairo:      There are frequent daily flights between Cairo and Aswan. If you are flying into Aswan on the morning your safari starts, book an early flight with an arrival time of no later than 8.30 or 9.30am to avoid missing valuable time on the lake. On arrival in Aswan our tour coordinator will meet you and transfer you directly to the safari start point; a 15min drive from the airport.

From Luxor:     The most convenient way to reach Aswan is to arrange a mini bus transfer by road; an interesting three hour drive following the Nile up the Nile Valley through rural Egypt to Aswan. If required we can help with these arrangements.

On the day your safari starts we will meet you at the airport, your hotel or from a Nile cruise ship and then transfer you to and from the safari start point on the lake.
