Airfare to Alexandria, Egypt
Located on the Mediterranean Sea, Alexandria is the second-largest city in Egypt. The ancient Greek ties are a big draw here – walk along the Corniche and imagine the former Pharos (lighthouse) beaming out to sea, or explore the Graeco-Roman Museum or Roman Catacombs at Kam-el-Shuqqafa.

Here are a few more tips to help you find cheap airfare to Alexandria:
- Consider flights into Cairo. To get from Cairo to Alexandria, you can grab a spot on a train, bus or flight. Look for cheap flights on no frills airlines. Although it will take longer to reach your destination, a bus or train could save you enough cash to make it worth your while.
- Look for flights that go through Nairobi, Kenya; Cape Town, South Africa; Lagos, Nigeria or another major gateway city instead of flying direct. Because there are more flights – and competition – from these cities on low budget airlines, you can save some cash over flying non-stop to your destination. It is very common to layover in one of these main cities.
- Consider traveling on a lesser-known carrier. EgyptAir is the national airline. However, Olympic Airlines, Lufthansa and other airlines also stop in Alexandria.
- Airfare to Alexandria will be the cheapest on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursday. Mondays are popular with business travellers and weekends are key dates for holidaymakers wanting the longest trips possible – avoid these dates. The most expensive air tickets to Alexandria are found during peak holiday travel times, such as the New Year. Also be aware of national events or festivals, which can also cause ticket prices to rise.
