Airports in The Sinai Peninsula And The Red Sea
Hurghada International Airport is one of the main gateways (along with Sharm El-Sheikh) to Egypt's popular Red Sea resorts. Located three miles (5km) from El Dahar in central Hurghada, the airport handles about seven million passengers each year.
The airport's single terminal has recently expanded to add a number of duty-free stores and restaurants and a second runway. The facility is much larger and more modern, contrasting sharply with the cramped chaos of the old terminal.
Hurghada Airport is located 3 miles (5km) south of the city of Hurghada El Dahar.
Getting to the city
Taxis are available outside the terminal building but rates should be negotiated before entering the taxi. Drivers often prefer to be paid in US Dollars, Euros or British Pounds. The journey time to Hurghada El Dahar (Downtown) is approximately 20 minutes. You can also find transfers from the airport to town by minivan or bus; minibuses are available outside the airport, leaving once full.
