Here is My Turkey to Egypt to Lebanon Itinerary and Maps
Turkey to Egypt to Lebanon Itinerary – Part 1
Egyptian Air, a Star Alliance Airline and part of Delta’s Group is how I searched for my tickets. You may find cheaper prices using a local airline. These prices are for the day I searched – prices will vary based on when you are traveling.
Round trip from Istanbul Ataturk, Turkey TAV Airport to Cairo, Egypt Airport code CAI is pretty inexpensive. Regional airlines are less than Egyptian Air and much less than flying from the USA. Flying round trip is even less expensive than one-way. Round trip it runs about $260.00 to $300.00.
How to Travel to Several Countries
Some airplane tickets can’t be bought as a multi-leg journey – like we can in the USA. When I went, I bought three separate legs.

How to Buy Your Tickets
Instead of purchasing a round-trip ticket that might have saved me $50.00. I purchased these tickets as separate legs – or – three, one-way tickets. Recently, when I tried to purchase a multi-leg trip, I couldn’t do it. The search came back “flight unavailable”.

Exit Taxes – What is an Exit Tax
In Egypt, I did have to pay an exit tax to leave Cairo, Egypt. I am not sure it was a legitimate tax, but that is what I call the “payment to an official to get through the security line.” If I hadn’t paid the security guard the man in line behind me said, ‘I couldn’t exit.’ so I paid the money, it wasn’t worth the hassle. Maybe this was truly an exit fee. I did negotiate the price. The man reduced the “fee” from $500 to $50 Egyptian Pound. The exchange rate is below – this wasn’t a lot of money. But, I am glad I had Egyptian Pounds in my purse. Some people were running to the cash machine to get more money.
