 CAI Cairo Airport Info & Guide


Cairo International Airport

Where is Cairo Airport? Cairo International Airport is the busiest airport in Egypt and the primary hub for Star Alliance member EgyptAir. The airport is located to the north-east of the city around 15 kilometres from the business area of the city.


The Cairo Airport is administered by the Egyptian Holding Co. for Airports and Air Navigation (EHCAAN), which controls four companies including: Cairo Airport Co., Egyptian Airports Co., National Air Navigation Services and Aviation Information Technology and the Cairo Airport Authority (CAA), which is the regulatory body. In 2004, Fraport AG won the management contract to run the airport for 8 years.


Cairo Airport is the second busiest airport in Africa after Johannesburg International Airport in South Africa. 58 airlines use Cairo Airport (including charter airlines) and 10 cargo airlines. With the assimilation of EgyptAir into Star Alliance in July 2008 the Cairo Airport has the potential to be a major hub with its positioning between Africa, the Middle East and Europe (especially with facilities for the A380).


In 2008, the airport served 14,360,175 passengers (+14.2% vs. 2007) and handled just over 138,000 aircraft movements (+12.4% vs. 2007).


The Cairo Airport has three terminals with a third (and largest) opened on 27 April 2009. A fourth runway is currently under construction (opens late 2009) and a single cargo terminal. Runway 05L/23R is 3,300m long, 05C/23C has a length of 4,000m and 16/34 is 3,180m (all of the runways are 60m wide). The fourth runway (05R/23L), which is south of the existing airfield is 4,000m by 65m and will be suitable for the Airbus A380.
