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 Basra

Basrah International Airport (BSR) is located to the South of the city, at a distance of about 20 km. Built in the 1960s, over the years it has been renovated and expanded to serve the needs of travellers, but it can already boast being the second largest airport in Iraq.

Airport Transportation in Basra

For tourists, the main means of transport in Basra are taxis. You can take a taxi to Basrah International Airport, which is a relatively affordable option.
