Cairo International Airport (CAI)
History, Facts and Overview
Built during the mid-1940s and serving American Allied Forces, Cairo International Airport was soon used for civil aviation purposes after the end of the Second World War. The overall facilities within the terminal were improved and commercial flights both to and from Cairo were encouraged.
Following considerable growth at Cairo Airport, two further terminals have been built, in 1986 and 2007, with the original terminal being fully modernised and now used mainly by EgyptAir.
Terminal 3 is capable of accommodating the new generation of Airbus planes and future predictions expect to see passenger levels at Cairo Airport more than doubling.
Next to Arrival Hall 3 in the original Terminal 1, the new AirMall is a large shopping centre, where all your needs will be met. Further duty-free shopping at Cairo Airport is available in Terminal 2, along with a good restaurant situated between both arrivals and departures.
