London to Cairo


easyJet has unveiled its latest addition to its ever-expanding network – a new route connecting London Luton to the enchanting city of Cairo.

This exciting endeavor marks not only a new venture for the airline but also opens up a gateway for travelers to experience Egypt’s capital year-round.

Cairo, the sprawling metropolis steeped in history and culture, is set to become a prominent destination on easyJet’s extensive short-haul map.

Home to iconic landmarks such as the Giza Pyramids and the Sphinx, as well as the meandering Nile River, Cairo has an allure that’s hard to resist.

Its rich tapestry weaves together historic palaces, grand mosques, and captivating museums, creating an experience that resonates with both history enthusiasts and modern explorers.

Starting from the 31st of October, easyJet’s flights will take off three times a week – on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.

An Iconic Destination


With the addition of Cairo to its roster, easyJet continues to solidify its reputation as a leader in the travel industry.

Ali Gayward, easyJet’s UK Country Manager, echoes this sentiment, stating, “The new route from London Luton to this iconic destination further expands the choice we are offering our customers, provides greater connectivity to the city to support inbound tourism and business travel alike.”

As Chief Commercial Officer Jonathan Rayner points out, Cairo’s selection as a new destination speaks volumes about the appeal of this ancient city.

The iconic landmarks and cultural treasures that Cairo boasts make it an attractive choice for travelers departing from London Luton Airport.
