You can fly from London to Egypt in 5-6 hours. An early morning flight from London to Cairo would mean you could be tucking into a British breakfast in the morning and seeing the Pyramids later the same day. Even if you only have a few days to spare, you have time to see the Pyramids of Giza, the Sphinx, the Egyptian Museum, and other major Cairo sites.
Cairo is the most popular destination for visitors wanting to go from London to Egypt, followed by Luxor and the Red Sea resort destinations of Sharm el-Sheikh and Hurghada.
You can also fly direct from London to:
There are several other airports in Egypt, including Aswan and Alexandria, but to get to these from London requires a change of plane, normally in Cairo. There is a good internal network of flights on EgyptAir, so it’s quite easy to base yourself in somewhere like Sharm el-Sheikh, say, and do day trips to both Cairo and Luxor, depending on the season.
