Can I buy prepaid simcard for Ipad at Cairo Airpot

Hi

I'm going to Luxor next week. I need to have aces to the internet, and want to buy a prepaid simcard for my Ipad.

Can I buy that at Cairo airport?

Thank you

In the Cairo airport hall (near exit) there is a Vodafone store (there's also other company store).

Last summer I went the holidays plane, it's for tourist, http://***.vodafone.com.eg/vodafoneportalWeb/en/P601378041288685280406, but they haven't, so I bought an Egyptian SIM "prepaid el kart", http://***.vodafone.com.eg/vodafoneportalWeb/en/P601078041288685244150 (20 LE with 5 LE credit).

Same time, after recharged the SIM, I bought an Internet mobile bundle vodafone.com.eg/vodafoneportalWeb/en/P114012… (take a look to "mobile internet add-ons" tab)

I payed 40 LE, 1.1 GB internet for 1 month.

Prepaid "el kart SIM" is better because "holiday SIM" is valid for 60 days, the "prepaid el kart SIM" I don't know, but at moment is still working, I used and recharged it in January. Problem was SMS from Vodafone in Arab language, so I contacted costumer client and they changed in English

You need your passport.

Be careful, online recharge need Egyptian credit card.

I don't know if there's a Vodafone store in Luxor Airport, In Sharm El Sheik airport there isn't

ciao
