LXR Airport Overview

luxor airport guideTo help you plan your layover or overnight sleepover, here is a quick run-down about what to expect during your time at Luxor International Airport.

What to Expect

The recently renovated terminal at Luxor Airport (code: LXR) primarily handles routes across the Middle East and Europe. Security may be chaotic and involve questionable procedures like unnecessary luggage searches. Facilities include a few eateries and shops, though none are open 24 hours. WiFi is reportedly free.

Where to Sleep

We do not yet have any sleep-related airport reviews.  Have a backup plan if you’re planning to spend the night.  For uninterrupted sleep, nearby hotels offer shuttle service. See our Airport Hotels section below for more info or read some traveller airport reviews for more tips.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the current Covid-19 pandemic, all services and times listed below are subject to change. Some services and facilities may remain closed or operate with reduced hours.  Airport tips and suggestions in this guide and elsewhere on the site were written before March 2020 and may no longer be valid. If you are planning to sleep in the public area of the terminal overnight, have a back-up plan! We’ve heard from a few travellers at other airports and they were not permitted to stay overnight. We’re not sure if that will apply to this airport, until a reader lets us know the current situation. We will start updating all of our guides in October 2021.  To help us with this massive update, you can add or update information or write a review and submit photos and airport tips.

In this guide we may refer to locations as “landside” and “airside”. Landside is the public area of the terminal located in the non-secure zone, before security. Airside is the secure area of the terminal that you must reach by going through security.  For more information on Europe’s Schengen Area, click here.
