Starting from October 28, 2023, these daily flights will operate from Terminal 2, Dubai International (DXB) to Sphinx International Airport (SPX).


Trade and tourism growth

flydubai’s network in Africa is continuously growing, with the recent addition of Cairo. This expansion aligns with the airline’s mission to create free flows of trade and tourism between countries, making travel more convenient and accessible to a broader audience.

Hamad Obaidalla, Chief Commercial Officer at flydubai, emphasized the importance of nurturing both trade and tourism when he spoke on the launch of flights to Cairo:

“We are pleased to announce the start of operations to Cairo from October. flydubai is committed to creating free flows of trade and tourism between countries and enabling more people to travel conveniently and more often,” he stated.

“ I would like to thank the authorities for their support in launching operations to Cairo’s Sphinx International Airport, and we look forward to growing the traffic on this new entry point to the city over the years.”

Gateway to History and Culture

Sphinx International Airport is strategically located on the road between Cairo and Alexandria, just forty-five kilometers from the iconic pyramids of Giza. This new airport serves not only the residents of Greater Cairo but also the governorates of Fayoum and Beni Suif.

What’s more, Sphinx International Airport is a short drive from Egypt’s main historical and archaeological sites, facilitating seamless connections with the Red Sea resorts, including Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada.
