Flights to Egypt present more than the typical sunshine holiday offerings of powdery white sand, clear inviting waters and friendly resorts.
In Egypt this is all delivered in a neat package wrapped up in millennia of intriguing history and mythology, and the chance to walk among the awe-inspiring relics of it.
You might be heading to one of the popular resorts dotted along the coastline of the Red Sea - famed for excellent diving and palm-fringed beaches. But the treasures that await outside the resort, such as the Pyramids at Giza or the stirring Valley of the Kings, may entice you away from the shoreline and into the heartlands of this exciting African nation.
Egypt flights will deliver you into one of a number of major airports, the most popular being: Cairo Airport (CAI) in the country's capital - ideal for a city visit; Sharm El Sheikh Airport (SSH), which serves the Sinai Peninsula and the resorts on the north shores of the Red Sea; Hurghada Airport (HRG) on the western shores of the Red Sea; Luxor Airport (LXR), the gateway to the wonders of Thebes and the Nile; Marsa Alam Airport (RMF), serving the fast growing resort of the same name further south on the Red Sea; Taba Airport (TCP) is on the border of Israel and Jordan, and also caters for holidaymakers arriving at northern Red Sea resorts; and Alexandria El Nohza Airport (ALY), which is located on the northern coast of Egypt on the Mediterranean Sea.
There is no shortage of sunshine in Egypt and resort holidays continue to be popular for Brits, with flights to Egypt taking around five hours.
The summer months are extremely hot. The cheapest flight prices are usually to be found between June and August, as many visitors prefer to see Egypt when the mercury isn't pushing past 30C.
Holidays outside of the resorts - and trips from them - include pleasant Nile cruises, or sailing on feluccas, the traditional wooden sailing boats with sails that look like shark fins rising above the water.
The Pyramids at Giza and the Great Sphinx of Giza are on the edge of Cairo, and at the city's fascinating Egyptian Museum you can dive head first into the country's past via an impressive collection of antiquities. It's also a great place to spend a cool few hours out of the oppressive heat of bustling Cairo.
The Temple of Karnak at Thebes is near Luxor in the southern half of the country, as is the Valley of the Kings. The city of Aswan and the Abu Simbel temples, on the shores of Lake Nasser, can also be found in the south.
Excursions to discover this enthralling land are available from most holiday resorts at reasonable prices.
