How to move from Alexandria international airport ( Borg El Arab) to the city center ( El Gondy El Maghool square) on budget.

  • Until very recently the only means of transport that were available from Borg El Arab to the city were ubers, taxis, and limos
  • However there's a new cheaper way to travel, airport bus service offered by Egypt bus, it's sort of a luxury airport bus service and that's the only means of transport that's close to public transport, there's is no public transport really from the airport.
  • Fare is 50EGP approx US$3 and takes about 1hour to get to the city.
  • The buses, however, don't go directly to El Gondy El Maghool square but terminate at Muharram Bek station (still within the city center) which is roughly 4 kilometers from the square.
  • Tickets can be purchased online or at the airport.
  • Airport bus service operates on a 24-hour basis.
  • Taxis and ubers on the other hand cost between EGP 80- 100.
