    Mel
    I am a frequent flyer to Nozha Airport in Alexandria. If you take the taxi just out side the arrival area to the train station it will cost you 40 LE. I ignore every body and walk 200 meters to the out side gate where there is a round about, taxi from there to the train station is 7-10 LE maximum. I usually have one big suitcase that I can easily drag along while walking this 200 meters.

    I have no Idea where Kfr Abdo "it sounds familiar though" is but you are certainly better off taking the taxi from the round about

    Hello Mel

    Just as Doctor38 said, as soon as you come out of Nozha Airport, you gonna find several taxis (blue colour) these are the touristic taxis, these will say a number around 40-80 Egyptian pounds,
    if you dont have a heavy bag, can walk for liek 200 meter (and time is not very late) walk to the outside, of the airport, where you gonna find taxis (black & yellow) these are the local taxis and would ask for 10-15 egyptian pounds
    Kafr abdo is not far from the airport, it is around 10-15 minute
    I would recommend talking a blue colour taxi and try to stick to 40 or 50 egyptian pounds maximum.
    I live in alexandria, so donot hesitate to ask me anything
    cheers

    Salam ya Mohamed
    How can I get from Borg El Arab Airport to Alexandria? Is there a bus? how much does it cost? what is the schedule? I don't want to use the expensive taxi

    Is there a bus from Borg El Arab Airport to Cairo? any Idea about the schedule?

    Sorry Mel for diverting your question But I know you'd be interested too

    Thanks

    Hello Dr
    from Borg El Arab Airport to Alexandria, there is a local transportation bus that waits infront of the airport exit after every flight. It is a local bus so it is not something fancy but it will get you to alexandria , normally ticket is something like 3 egyptian pounds and you pay another ticket for your luggage

    Taxis there are abit greedy since they know you are in the middle of the desert, so expect the fare to be aroudn 80-120 or even 150 Egyptian pounds, depending on your flight time.

    As for Cairo, there is no bus going from the Borg Airport to Cairo. Some Airlines arrange some bus for their flights , I remember Emirates when they used to fly to Alexandria, they provided that for their passengers, so check with your airline.

    If not, then your options are
    a) booking from a limo service inside the airport
    b) booking online from a travel agency
    c) bargain with the blue taxis

    cheers
