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.

Ibrahim Nasir International Airport (MLE) is the major airport in Male, located on Hulhulé Island. The airport has changed its name twice from Hulhulé Airport and later from Male Airport. It is the Maldives’ main airport and the only one with international flights.

The airport has multiple terminals and one of its most fascinating is the Seaplane Terminal which is mainly for inter-island trips. The airport has modern amenities and facilities such as Wi-Fi and various Internet stations for Internet access. Duty-free shops can be found in the departures area and you can also find souvenir shops in both the departure and transit lounges.

If on Hulhulé Island, you can always catch a bus to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport. Otherwise small boats known as dhoni are available for inter-island travel. Taxis are also available and because the island is small, a taxi to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport does not cost much. There is no available train to Ibrahim Nasir International Airport but you can also use a speed boat or ferry.
