Situated 6 km / 4 miles east of Luxor city itself (Al Uqsur) and close to both Al Bayadiyah and El-Dabiya, Luxor International Airport (LXR) is a gateway for the area's popular Nile Valley tourist destinations. This is the closest airport to the renowned Valley of the Kings, which is situated just south of Luxor, and is currently Egypt's fourth-largest airport.
Challenges & objectives of the project
An established airport, meeting increasing demands for growth, Luxor International Airport was built next to the desert and the suburb of Al Hubayl. Located on the far easterly outskirts of the city, Luxor Airport quickly grew in stature and was upgraded in 2005 to accommodate more passengers, meeting future growth projections.
Lafarge role on the project
Lafarge Cement Egypt supplied the project on time with all the kinds and quantities of cement required over the very long distances between the factory and the project.
