There is also said to be a direct bus from Amman to Cairo , but passengers should be aware that their passports will be stamped by Isreali authorities along the route. Travellers from Saudi-Arabia may try a ferry from Jeddah to Suez . There seem to be no ferries at present from Europe.

Getting Egypt

Edit This

There is a variety of good options for getting to Egypt, with good connections between Cairo and many European cities. Bargain holiday packages including hotel vouchers can work out cheaper than booking a flight independently, and you can just chuck the vouchers away if resorts aren't your style. Flights from elsewhere can be expensive and it's worth looking at making your way to Egypt via Europe, as this is often a cheaper option than flying direct.

Egypt's national air carrier is EgyptAir, and Air Sinai also has good connections in Egypt. Most more..
