Guide to hotels, flights, diving, excursions and more.
You can get direct international flights to Marsa Alam from Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom.  For other countries your best bet is probably to fly to Cairo and connect with an Egypt Air flight to Marsa Alam.  For more details please consult the links or lists below.  

The subsections are arranged alphabetically by country.   Please always check any information below with your airline before making a booking.

While you might wish to use our travel ideas to inspire your online research, please don't rely on any of our flight information when you book in case of any mistake or possible changes Airlines might have made to the schedule.


The most convenient flights, as of 2017, appear to be either direct flights to Marsa Alam with Niki or flights with the parent company Air Berlin via Dusseldorf. The Air Berlin Ticket Desk is at Terminal 1A, Departure Level and check in is normally at desk 125.  Please check the websites for the current schedules and to book a ticket. 

Are there other alternatives from Vienna ?  Well, as of 2017, you could try to fly a combination of Austrian Airlines to Munich or Frankfurt and then a Lufthansa flight to Cairo (also bookable via Austrian) and then Egypt Air to Marsa Alam.  The problem is that besides the complicated route and long journey time to Cairo, these flights appear to arrive in Marsa Alam late in the day and it seems that currently (as of January 2017) Egypt Air flights leave Cairo for Marsa Alam at 8 am.  However while you might wish to use our travel ideas to inspire your online research, please don't rely on any of our flight information when you book in case of any mistake or possible changes Airlines might have made to the schedule.   


As of January 2017 Tuifly Belgium appears to be operating one Thursday flight every week from Brussels to Marsa Alam and a return flight from Marsa Alam to Brussels later the same day. The times may vary so it's very important you check all information with Tuifly prior to booking. 


As of early December 2016, to make any trip with Egypt Air from Copenhagen to Marsa Alam it seems you might need to stay overnight in or near Cairo airport with a total journey time of around 18 hours.  However do check with the EgyptAir website in case we've made a mistake and also for any updates as schedules are often changing.  We should add that there is a lot to see in Cairo - especially if book two nights in Cairo and take a whole day to explore the sites - check out our Cairo page for more details. 

A good alternative as of 2016/2017 seems to be with  Air Berlin flying from Copenhagen via Dusseldorf. Please check all information with Air Berlin prior to booking including details of journey time and connecting airport in case we've made a mistake or in case of any schedule changes.

Tui Airlines Netherlands ( formerly Akrefly ) operates, as of January 2017, several direct flights to Marsa Alam (RMF) every week from Amsterdam Schiphol (AMS). Please check the airline website for the current schedule and to book your ticket. 


As of January 2017 Air Berlin flies twice weekly between Zurich and Marsa Alam while Edelweiss has three flights weekly to Hurghada from Zurich.  Hurghada is about a two and half hour drive from Marsa Alam but costs a lot less than you might image ( see our taxi page ). 

Air Berlin has outgoing flights on Thursdays (direct) and Tuesdays (via Vienna) however please check with the airline for the details and in case of any mistake in our information or change of schedule.
