Cairo Airport (CAI)
Cairo Airport (CAI) is the largest airport in Egypt and the second busiest airport in Africa. The airport is home to the national airline EgyptAir and Nile Air. You can travel by bus and taxi between Cairo airport and the city. In the future it is not yet clear when it will be possible to travel to and from the city center with Cairo Metro Line 3.
Cairo is the capital of Egypt and the largest city in the Arab world. The metropolitan area, with more than 20 million inhabitants, is the largest in Africa, the Arab world and the Middle East, and the 6th largest in the world. Cairo is associated with ancient Egypt as the famous Giza pyramid complex and the ancient city of Memphis are located in the geographical area.
Cairo is fan-shaped, narrowest in the south, where the river valley is wedged between steep slopes, and widest in the north, where the valley merges into the delta. Over the centuries, the city expanded westward as a retreating river channel left the land flood-free. However, in response to increased demand, the city has also been extended to the north and south and has developed an expanding outbuilding on the west coast of the Nile.
Cairo has the oldest and largest film and music industries in the Arab world, as well as the second oldest higher education institution in the world, Al-Azhar University. Many international media, companies and organizations have regional headquarters in the city; the Arab League has spent most of its existence in Cairo.
