Cairo West Sphinx International Airport

IATA: n/a
City: Cairo
Country: Egypt


Cairo West Air Base is a military facility used by the Egyptian Air Force. There are plans to open up the base to commercial airline services in order to reduce capacity issues at Cairo International Airport. The airport was renamed as Sphinx International Airport, ahead of the launch of commercial services in Jun-2018. A similar measure is proposed for Qatameya Air Base also.
