Traveling to Jerusalem after my flight from Cairo?


I tried to get a Cairo - Jerusalem flight but so far can't get hold of any travel agent in Cairo or Jerusalem who would respond to me. And from Canada the travel companies don't have a license to issue that flight.

So now I am considering flying to Amman and crossing the bridge. It is somewhat ridiculous but it comes to that, would I have enough time to make it? I will land in Amman on either Monday 22nd or Thursday- Friday Dec 25th or 36th. The flight is supposed to land at 10AM. would need to wait for luggage.


1- Would that giv me enough time to make it to JErusalem?

2- Should I take a taxi to Amman first then a taxi to the border or a taxi directly to the border?

3- How much time will all this process take and cost? How much time should I add on the israeli side? 4h?

Thanks Dhiban for the information. Can you advice how much is the taxi cost from AMM to Allenby Bridge?

How much longer if take public transportation, as we want to keep the budget low?

Air Sinai flies direct but I think only on Mondays; I think you need to find an Israeli agent specialist, or try calling Egyptair. Otherwise you have to go through Amman on RJ airlines.

I don't know what Travel Agent you use but I suggest

perhaps you use another !

Even though you gave a void destination in the beginning any reputable travel agent would know that

you should fly to Tel Aviv which is known as Ben Gurion.

El Al Fly to Cairo and so do Egypt Air and Air Sinai.
