Getting Around Cairo Airport

Post by Winged Isis »

It's many years since I've needed to change terminals on arrival, so need your help with up-to-date information, please.

I have Client A arriving from Oz early morning into T2. An hour and a half later, Client B arrives from Upper Egypt into T3.

I know T2 and T3 are/were within a short walking distance. Does Client A still have to go outside to get to T3, or is there internal access now?

If they have to go outside, can they enter T3 to meet Client B at the Domestic Arrivals gate? If not, I guess they will be better off waiting in T2 until they hear from the other they are waiting for their baggage before they walk over, to avoid possible hassle from guides and taxi drivers et al.


Carpe diem! :le:

No my dear sir, things have changed since those days.

By the way MT, it's a few years ago now that I was in Cyprus, but I always remember Larnaca Airport going through duty free, but before you got there you had to pass through their own sort of 'duty free' that sold 'balls Whiskey' 'Captain Moorgun's Rum'. These such products were also sold, along with many other such cheap drinks, in the many clubs and bars of the well known destinations on the west coast of that island, which I understand is frequented by the great un-washed of our dear home nation.

Question being, under the EU rules, do this still allow these such products ?

I only ask this question because I know how crafty the Greeks are, but for sure the Greek Cypriots are much more so. :wi .

What is a 'tai' ? Do you have to pay for one? Is it expensive?
