Cairo: €216 Non-Stop LOT Flights from Warsaw (€294 w/ Checked Bag)

Cairo Camel Pyramids

Star Alliance member LOT Polish Airlines is currently selling tickets for its non-stop Warsaw to Cairo route starting at just PLN 961 (~€222). These fares only include a carry-on bag. The fare which includes a checked bag costs PLN 1,311 (~€303) on LOT’s website. However, Star Alliance Gold members, as well as Miles&More Frequent Travellers, don’t have to pay extra for luggage.

Our availability calendar highlights all possible flight dates at the lowest price for trips up to 28 days. It will forward you to Skyscanner’s polish website with your selected flight dates. There, you can choose between saving a few euros through OTAs or going to LOT’s website which sells these tickets for PLN 961 (~€222)

You would fly LOT’s Boeing 737 family aircraft which have a standard 3-3 configuration in economy class. While LOT has a very generous snack offering for short flights, it appears that Cairo didn’t make the list of destinations where LOT serves hot food. Travel-Dealz editor Miklós got the same service on his 4-hour Málaga flight (on a Dreamliner) as he got on his short Polish domestic flight (Cairo is approximately the same duration).

Search & Book

The fare rules do not state how long this fare will remain valid. There is a minimum stay of 4 nights and a maximum stay of 12 months.

You can use our calendar above that will show you availabilities. Once you select your dates, it will forward you Skyscanner Poland with your preselected flight dates. You can then choose between LOT’s website or online travel agencies (OTAs). As your savings would be minimal by booking through an OTA, we recommend booking through LOT. You can also search more specifically on Google Flights (instructions) for example by setting filters.

Why is booking with an airline better than with an online travel agency?

More often than not, online travel agencies offer lower fares than airlines do. We still recommend booking with the airlines directly. There are two main reasons for that:

Better Customer Service
In case any problems like delays, cancellations or missed connections arise, you can communicate directly with the airline. The airline has to take care of you because you have a contract with them.

If a travel agency issues your ticket, you may have to reach out to them first. You also depend on your OTA to forward information like flight changes instead of receiving them directly from the airline. In many cases, you may get a prime exhibition of responsibility shifting rather than problem-solving.

This especially applies to premium tickets. You don’t want to spend more than €1,000 to wind up with some budget OTA’s telephone hotline in case anything goes wrong.

Baggage and Other Fees
Economy fares not including hold luggage are industry standard by now. In most cases, travel agencies charge much higher baggage fees than the airlines themselves. If bags are not included in your fare, airlines are often the cheaper alternative.

This also applies to other things like food services, insurances or priority treatment. In almost all cases, you pay less for additional amenities when booking on the airlines’ website.

Information & Tips for Egypt

The North African country of Egypt is a favorite travel destination for many. Its location on the Red Sea and the Mediterranean, as well as its great weather, are ideal for vacation! Furthermore, the country offers immense cultural sights to explore.

Best Time to Visit

Regarding weather, the best time to visit is from October to April. Then temperatures are at their most pleasant. However, December and January constitute peak tourist season. Iconic sights like the Pyramids of Giza, the Temples of Luxor, and Abu Simbel can get uncomfortably crowded.

Visa & Entry

Most EU citizens can obtain an Egypt visa on arrival at the Cairo International airport at the bank kiosks before the immigration counters. A Visa will cost for 20€ and is valid for visits up to 30 days.

    An awful flight in general, an awful schedule, an awful (no)service, and, finally,…an awful “à la Ryanair” airline! Think twice, dear readers! LOT is a “candy wrapped” garbage.

      I disagree. LO gives you hand luggage (unlike Ryanair), drinks and a snack (unlike Ryanair), and free luggage to Star Alliance Gold and Miles&More Frequent Travellers (unlike most European airlines).
