Where is Cairo Airport?  


The capital and largest city of Egypt, Cairo's metropolitan area is the largest in the Middle East and the Arab world. Cairo is nicknamed "the city of a thousand minarets", and has long been a centre of the region's political and cultural life.


Modern Cairo was founded in 969 CE during the Fatimid dynasty, but the land composing the present-day city was the site of ancient city of Memphis, the remnants of which remain visible in parts of Old Cairo. Located near the Nile Delta, the famous Giza pyramid complex is located within Cairo's geographical area.
