Nile Cruise Ships We Recommend

Flights from Cairo

Eqypt Air

Flights from Cairo are on large jet planes; usually wide body air buses so no need to be concerned about flying in small planes. Egypt is full of tourists and they use these large planes even for the short 40 minute flights. Service includes drinks on all flights and snacks on those over an hour long. Embarkation is either Luxor or Aswan depending on the cruise you select. Your guides will handle ticketing, checking in the luggage, collecting the luggage and getting it to the ship. You will be taken care of every step of the way.
