Hurghada is accessible through major airports in Europe and the Middle East. Prices vary depending on when you book and the airline. Most major European and Middle Eastern airlines may fly you directly to Hurghada International Airport without stopping in Cairo.

If you are in Cairo, you may also travel to Hurghada on Egypt Air Express, the country’s official airline and a subsidiary of Egypt Air, which is currently serving internal destinations throughout Egypt. Prices range from 400 to 900 Egyptian pounds depending on the season and how far in advance you order your tickets.

Egypt Air offers flights from Sharm el-Sheikh for about 450-550 LE (the trip takes about 1 hour).

There are many stations, one of which is located below Cairo Railway Station Ahmed Helmy.
