Luxor is linked to Cairo by several EgyptAir flights a day, as well as to Alexandria, Aswan, and Sharm El-Sheikh. There are also many nonstop flights from European destinations.
Luxor Airport is approximately 11 km (7 miles) northeast of town; travel time from central Luxor is about 15 to 20 minutes.
EgyptAir flies daily direct to Luxor from Cairo, and to Alexandria, Aswan, and Sharm El-Sheikh with a connection in Cairo, offering the only domestic air service. There are usually at least two one-hour flights daily from Cairo; reconfirming tickets (in person or through your hotel) two days in advance is an absolute must. The Luxor office is open daily 8–8. EgyptAir also has scheduled international flights direct to Luxor from London, and from Brussels, Paris, and Rome with a connection in Cairo.
