Until the Muslim conquest, great continuity had typified Egyptian rural life. Despite the incongruent ethnicity of successive ruling groups and the cosmopolitan nature of Egypt’s larger urban centre, the language and culture of the rural, agrarian masses—whose lives were largely measured by the annual rise and fall of the Nile River, with its annual inundation—had changed only marginally throughout the centuries. Following the conquests, both urban and rural culture began to adopt elements of Arab culture, and an Arabic vernacular eventually replaced the Egyptian language as the common means of spoken discourse. Moreover, since that time, Egypt’s history has been part of the broader Islamic world, and though Egyptians continued to be ruled by foreign elite—whether Arab, Kurdish, Circassian, or Turkish—the country’s cultural milieu remained predominantly Arab.
New Cairo is a city covering an area of about 30,000 hectares (70,000 acres) on the southeastern edge of Cairo Governorate, 25 kilometres (15 mile) from Maadi. With Population of 200,000, New Cairo is one of the new cities, which have been built, in and around Cairo to alleviate the congestion in downtown Cairo. It was established in the year 2000. Located in what was formerly Helwan governorate, and located to the east of Maadi and Heliopolis. New Cairo ranges in elevation between 250 and 307 metres (820 and 1,007 ft) above sea level. The city could eventually host a population of 5 million. When compared to 6th of October, also built with the hopes of alleviating the strain on Cairo, more homes are being built in New Cairo.
The outstanding reason for the selection of these areas has been the presence of major and complementary attractions and securing access and infrastructure development. Maadi has been designated with the additional destination of eco-tourism, to diversify the tourism prospect.
Egypt is full of wide range promising tourism resources like worldwide well- known temples and ruins, such as the pyramid Complex, as well as nature and wildlife for eco-tourism.
With its population of almost 100,000,000 people. Its GDP reached 235.37 billion US dollars in 2017, has healthily grown at average rate of 5.3% for last two decades. Presently, the Government sets priority in infrastructure development by planning construction of roads/highways and bridges to promote transportation and logistics system and the national economy.
Egypt is the most attractive destination for cultural tourism of the world. The Great Pyramid is one of famous wonder of the world and as well as many ancient temples, attracting tourists from every corner of the world. Due to the increase of tourists in current airport, the Government has encouraged and granted private companies to conduct feasibility study project for construction of another new big airport that ensure capacity for landing big jets/aircraft A380 and 747 series at Maadi City.
With the current and accelerated growth and development of country, and the rapid expansion of its capital city, with a population of about 10 million, an new airport has become and urgent imperative necessity.
Cairo International Airport (IATA: CAI) is the busiest airport in Egypt and the primary hub. The airport is located to the north-east of the city around 15 km from the business area of the city. In 2009, the airport served 14,382,042 passengers (+0.2% vs. 2008) and handled just under 143,000 aircraft movements (+3.6% vs. 2008). Total airfreight tonnage handled at the airport in 2009 dropped by 3.9% to approximately 274,550 tonnes.
The International Safety Standards require the new airport to be located at least 40km outside the city. On the other hand, the area around the current Cairo International Airport is limited an extension of the runway or the construction of a second runway to accommodate large airplanes such as Boeing 747 and Airbus 380 series.
LOCATION - GATEWAY OF CAIRO
Tourism is one of the leading sources of income, crucial to Egypt's economy. At its peak in 2010 the sector employed about 12% of Egypt's workforce serving approximately 14.7 million visitors Egypt, and providing
revenues of nearly $12.5 billion, as well as contributing more than 11% of GDP and 14.4% of foreign currency revenues. The Government aims to increase tourist visit to approximately 30 million in 2030 by promoting direct flight and have a new bigger airport which is be capable to receive the flight of international big jetliners.
II) CURRENT CAIRO AIRPORT
1) GENERAL INFORMATION
2) EXISTING AIRPORT FACILITIES
The table below indicates inventory and facilities of the present Cairo Airport:
3) PROBLEMS OF THE EXISTING AIRPORT
The Cairo International Airport is located exactly in the capital City, and it is not suited for large aircraft like Boeing 747 and Airbus 380 series take-off and landing.
Tourism is a major industry and very important to the country’s economy. However, international tourist operators require large aircraft, such as B747s and A380, to meet their scale of economy for organizing larger groups to visit Egypt.
4) FORCAST OF AIR TRAFFIC DEMAND
In principle, it determines airport and facility requirements for tourists
With the increase of passenger movements at 5% – 10% and flight movement at 10% - 15% annually, the airport planning and design is now a major concern to the Government. The solution therefore is to construct a new and modern airport which will be met international airport requirement and air traffic safety and stipulations.
It could be feasible to turn Cairo into an air-traffic hub between Europe and Africa, America and Asia. New runways have to meet the requirements of second generation jetliners such as B747, B767, B777, B787 and A330, A350, A380 etc.
DEVELOPMENT PLAN OF NEW CAIRO INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
It is expected that regional international traffic will still increase at the New Capital Airport. Therefore, the new airport is required to accommodate long haul flights and direct flights (intercontinental flights) that can be operated at the new Airport.
Master Plan and Project Phases
The Master Plan of New International Airport has been developed to fulfill the need for an operationally efficient and passenger friendly airport. Around the world, airports have been expanding their facilities to include retail outlets, office spaces and other commercial developments. Encompassing all these non-aviation facilities and more, the new International Airport aims at setting a benchmark for the development of future airport in the region.
The master plan ensures that the size and capacity of the airport’s facilities is in line with passenger traffic forecast and projected cargo growth. The facilities include runways, taxiways, apron, passenger terminal building, cargo terminal facility, fuel farm, fire service, aircraft maintenance facilities, access roads, car parking, control tower/technical building, maintenance/GSE workshop, administrative building, security and staff houses. The Master Plan is prepared in line with current ICAO standards and recommendations, IATA guidelines and AAI requirements.
The New International Airport shall be developed in accordance with international standards so that aircraft may be operated safely and efficiently.
The New International Airport should be designed taking convenience and amenity for users into consideration, as the biggest international airport in Cairo, and as the gateway for foreign tourists and business travelers.
The Development Plan of the New International Airport shall be flexible so that facilities may be expanded in accordance with increase of demand in the future.
The New International Airport shall be in harmony with the environment. The Airport Development Plan shall be coordinated with land use plans and regional development plan of the surrounding area.
Airport facilities shall be designed so that operation and maintenance will be easy, and related costs will be low.
Phase 1 development includes a passenger terminal, a 4,200 meter long runway, entrance/exit taxiways, isolation bay, air-side road system, two-way access road, air traffic complex, aeronautical equipment, rescues and firefighting facilities, airline support facilities, fuel farm, terminal parking, administration and maintenance buildings, ground equipment maintenance area, cargo complex and boundary/security wall/fencing. Additional phases will incorporate more facilities, which will be developed based on projected passenger traffic forecast and growth requirements.
The Government is considering two possible locations for the new airport and the final development site will be chosen and approved based on the Developer’s final presentation and feasibility study.
The site of New Cairo International Airport to be studied and proposed is in between of the No. 5 and No. 6, approximately 40km at the East of Maadi City.
i). Development Zone A
The Landside Terminal Zone contains primarily the terminal building. The terminal, T1, is capable to handle passengers’ traffic up to 3 million passengers per annum.
The terminal can cater for maximum of 42 aircraft. The gate position is flexible to accommodate different types of aircraft, e.g. B747, B777, and A330, A380. These will include short-term car parking, hotels, car rental facilities, office buildings, air-side, maintenance facilities, taxi feeder parks, coach stations and landside roads. In addition, other facilities have been located in this zone to benefit from the central location.
ii). Development Zone B
This zone contains the majority of the non-public facilities for the airport. This includes Cargo Center, Freight Forwarder Accommodation, space safeguarded for a Free Trade Zone (FTZ), Aircraft Maintenance Center, Handling Agent Facilities, Airport Engineering Facility, Terminal Contractor Base, Compass Base, Police Station and Freight Center Facilities. It also contains an area safeguarded for additional long-term car parking.
iii). Development Zone C
This zone contains the main long-term car parking area for the airport as this is conveniently located close to the main access road and to the terminal zone. Owing to the proximity of the runways, this area is unsuitable for the other users.
iv). Development Zone D
It contains all of the facilities which are required to service the airport. This will include additional cargo facilities, handling agent’s accommodations, engineering facilities and possibly flight catering facilities.
v). Development Zone E
This is the commercial zone supporting the airport. It contains Exhibition / Convention Center and offices and shop houses.
vi). Development Zone F
Residential area for the project
vii). Development Zone G
These are the air traffic control tower and building, VVIP facility, airlines maintenance facility and the possible General Aviation (GA) facility.
viii). Development Zone H
A fire rescue training center is proposed. This is to provide Fire / Rescue training / exhibition facilities for the Capital.
ix). Development Zone I
This is the airport hotel which is within walking distance to T1. It provides rooms, food and beverage, shops and seminar / function facilities to passengers (both inbound / outbound) local and transit passengers.
The runway is designed to accept the jumbo jet series of B747, B777, B787, A350 and A380. The ICAO aerodrome reference code for this airport is 4F with two runways.
Characteristics of the runway specification
Runway Length - 6,000 meters
Runway Width - 100 meters/runway
Bituminous structural pavement width - 100 meters/runway
Width of runway plus light paved shoulders - 100 meters
The minimum width of a runway strip for a precision approach runway in the code number 4F according to ICAO standards. It should be extended at least 60 meters before the threshold and beyond the runway end.
Runway End Safety Area
A runway End safety area will be provided at the end of each end of the runway as recommended in ICAO guidelines. In this safety area, objects which may endanger aircraft should be removed and the area should be cleared and graded for an aircraft undershooting or overrunning the runway.
The provision of a taxiway system between the runway and the apron will enable aircraft to travel between the runway and the apron with minimal delay and permit the runway to operate to its maximum capacity.
The layout of the apron and terminal and the relationship between the two has been designed to reflect international standards. The apron has to provide sufficient space for taxiing, parking, loading and unloading of the aircraft during the peak period as well as for all the support facilities that are required to ensure that the aircraft are handled quickly and efficiently.
Passenger Terminal Building
The planning approach for the passenger terminal is to accommodate all passengers handling and processing at one central location. Easy to check-in, ease of movement to departure gates, minimal queuing, as well as comfortable shopping and waiting areas, are all key features of this huge terminal building.
Layout: The passenger terminal is proposed as a single, fully air-conditioned, two level building capable of accommodating international and domestic operations. The basement houses, retail stores, rest areas and services. The arrival and departure areas are separated vertically with a modern, simple, straight-ahead flow system. The domestic and international departure lounges, and the majority of retail outlets are located on level 2 (first floor). The check-in facilities and baggage reclaim are located on level 1. The VIP lounge is located on the first floor. The terminal is designed for ease of operation and minimum maintenance.
Capacity: The total floor area planned is approximately 55,850 square meters. The terminal building is designed accommodate 2025 passengers at peak hour. The design reflects the best industry practice and caters for 24-hour-operations, under all weather conditions. All facilities provided will meet IATA standards.
Terminal Parking: In the first phase of development, a car park in front of the terminal building at the ground level will be developed for the convenience of passengers and visitors to the airport.

Matching runway lighting with runway edge lights, threshold, runway-end lights, touchdown lights and PAPI together with precision two-approach lighting systems will be installed in combination with ILS CAT I.
A taxiway lighting system for the partial parallel taxiway, the exit and entrance taxiways and the connections to the apron will be implanted. Apron floodlighting is provided to allow for efficient and safe handling of aircraft during night operations. On the apron, a simple (non-electronic) docking system will be included.
An approach radar system is also included in the list of aeronautical equipment. This can be located on or off-site. The system contains localizer and glide path equipment and maker beacons, together with a backup system. The CNS/ATM equipment will be provided by AAI.
Air Traffic Control Facilities
The Air Traffic Control (ATC) tower located on the landside will be 65-meter tall construction. The height will provide a free line of sight from the control cabin to the operational areas and the approaches. The control cabin will be provided with communication equipment, consoles, etc.
For air traffic control services not performed in the tower, (such as control area, and approach control) an ATC complex (Technical Block) will be developed with a floor area of 2,000 square meters. The technical block will compass ATC briefing, anti-hijacking control room, MET department, electronic workshop, data management system, library, training rooms and offices.
Rescue & Fire Fighting Facilities
The firefighting and rescue facilities do not directly correlate to the magnitude of the traffic flow. They instead correspond to protection levels recommended by ICAO for airports the size of the new Cairo International Airport. The total area of the planned fire station is 1,400 square meters with a watchtower located above the fire station.
Airline Support Facilities
The space requirements for the aircraft maintenance facilities will be mainly related to the aircraft fleet based at the airport and will be developed by airlines. Areas have been earmarked at the western end of the runway for this purpose.
Sewage & Drainage
The sewage and storm-water drain are designed as separate systems. The sewage system will include a collection network, pumpits, sewage treatment plant, etc. Sewage water from the airport-related facilities will be collected by mean of a landside and an air-side main duct running in east-west direction and equipment with manholes.
In corporation with the New Cairo International Airport, we propose to construct a new international standard on the land area of 2,100 hectares hectares in East District, and about 42km (through a new No.5 highway), about 50km (through a new No.6 highway) and about 30km (through a new No.7 highway) at the north of Maadi.

Maadi - The New Wisdom City
The central position and ready situation of New City as a National, Regional and International Gateway and Transport Hub, Free Trade Zone (FTZ), and New Wisdom City with a transit Tourism Centre, are unique and present high potential for commercial and socio-economic development.
The Air Freight Hub and the FTZ will be developed concurrently with tourism and transportation facilities. The use of passenger aircraft freight capacity will enhance the inherent competitive and comparative advantages for its development as a major regional freight hub.
Additionally, with the planned introduction of a “New City” within the FTZ, it is also planned to establish an International Banking and Financial Center. The combined investment and financial transactions by participating international parties in the establishment and operation of manufacturing, warehousing, trading and tourism facilities with the utilization of the Free Trade Zone, Transport Hub and Airport, will be a catalyst to the New Cairo Economy with a multi-billion dollar turnover over the next years and will create training, employment and business opportunities for many thousands of local people.
The Airport and adjoining FTZ, as well as New Wisdom City, will be an ongoing development over the next 5 years, with the total projected expenditure estimated to exceed 7 billion US dollars. However, after the initial capital investment, as proposed herein, ongoing project funding will be derived from operational proceeds, including revenues from land leases/sales, licensing fees, property leases/sales, airport and auxiliary operations, management contracts project and Joint Venture project developments within.
Additionally, the implementation of the New City project is also significant in regards to New Cairo’s strategic Socio-demographic Development.
There is an increasing influx of people into the new capital from many surrounding Provinces, resulting in an accelerated growth pattern that puts enormous strain and pressure on the city’s facilities and infrastructure. Additionally, it is not a desirable situation where a growing number of people leave their homes and families in the provinces to seek employment and better living conditions in the nation’s capital city.
The developments of New Airport and New Wisdom City have the potential to play a significant role by providing employment, schooling and training to tens of thousands of people and their families, which consequently will reduce excessive influx and take pressure of the new capital, through decentralization and growth diversion to the new environmental friendly city.
