From Alexandria to Cairo


I'm planning a trip to Cairo in November and am flying AirArabia to Alexandria El Nouzha airport. As the flight arrives at 0200 (in the morning), I'm wondering how I can get to Cairo.

Will there be taxis willing to take me from Alexandria to Cairo from the airport? Or will I have to arrange my own transport? If so, any recommendations? I don't fancy the train as I saw from the schedule the first train goes out at 0600. I don't want to wait that long.

Thanks in advance!

It's about a two hour drive. I have no idea if there will be taxis that would take you. You could always ask your hotel in Cairo to send a car to collect you. Maybe they could also give you an early checkin. It would be nearly time for breakfast when you arrive, you could eat and then freshen up and rest.
