Trains to Alexandria leave almost hourly and they are the most comfortable means of travel from Cairo to Alexandria. The only downfall is that you will need to take a taxi from the CAI Cairo International Airport to the Ramses Train Station (Mahattit Ramses) which will cost about EGP 30 , but make sure you negotiate the price before you leave the CAI Cairo International Airport.

Cairo Airport Subway Recommendations


 
IHateTaxis.com has a mixed recommendation on the Cairo Airport subway service.

The Metro can be fast during heavy traffic, but maybe not too practical if you have a lot of luggage.

Cairo has a very good Metro system. The Red line (Line 1) extends from Helwan, via the city centre towards the Cairo Airport, but terminates at El Marg and the fare is EGP 1. A taxi to El Marg from the Cairo Airport will allow you to take the Metro to town.
