Egypt’s New Administrative Capital Will Have a 'Larger’ and 'Wider’ Airport

If everything goes according to plan, there should be trains linking to the airport, making our lives and getting to the airport on time 100 times easier.

Among the many things that will be either expanding to, or moving altogether to the New Administrative Capital is an Egyptian Airport—a new one, and one that is said to be ‘larger’ and ‘wider’ than Cairo International Airport.

Younis Al-Masry, Minister of Civil Aviation, made the announcement on Thursday, claiming that the agreement was made between himself and President Abdel Fattah Al-Sisi. Masry added that all the necessary facilities will be established at the new airport, in order to ensure both comfort and safety for the passengers.

The exact location of the new airport is yet to be decided; Masry said that the groundwork will look into linking the new airport to many of Egypt’s governorates, so as to reach higher passenger traffic.

The New Administrative Capital is situated between Cairo-Suez and Cairo-Sokhna roads. It will be home to the new government location, as well as futuristic houses for millions of new people, hotels, mosques and churches; medical facilities, schools and colleges; and what’s set to be Africa’s tallest skyscraper.
