Arriving in Cairo

Book your flights to Cairo with Etihad Airways and begin your holiday experience surrounded by a great historical civilisation and culture.

Plan Your Cairo Holiday

You must travel to Cairo to experience its ancient marvels and also get a feel of the modern emblems of the city like The Opera House on the island of Zamalek. This place is a living symbol of post modern architecture. Drive up to the Suez Canal to watch a host of migratory birds of prey with the amazing sights of the canal in the backdrop. Just stroll down the Al-Azhar Park to take some stunning pictures of locals and the colourful and varied vegetation that is grown.

The weather in Cairo is moderate and dry most of the time. Summers can be somewhat hot though, which can put a hold on some outdoor activities. Cheap hotels in Cairo are available during the off-peak season in the hotter months. Book your tickets to Cairo in advance to enjoy the fall and spring which are recommended as the best seasons. Don’t forget to look for the best flight deals to Cairo in the Deals section of Etihad’s website to find flights all year round.

Major Airports in Mandalay

Since the turn of the century, Mandalay International Airport (MDL) has been one of the biggest and most used airports in all of Burma, serving both domestic and foreign flights. Completed in 1999, MDL is the biggest and most technologically advanced airport in the country. In fact, it is only one of three international airports in all of Burma. MDL is home to the largest runway in Southeast Asia, running 4,267 meters, or 14,000 feet. The airport was built to handle 3 million flights in and out of Mandalay every year. There are also a growing number of visitors traveling from Mandalay to Bangkok.

Airport Transportation in Mandalay

Mandalay International Airport is approximately 45 KM, or 28 miles, from the city. A taxi will cost a traveler roughly $6 US to get to the airport from the center of the city. A person can also hop onto a minibus for about $5 US to get to the airport. Of course, the minibus is rather time consuming, as it makes several stops along the way.
