October 2004: a Turkish firm is going to build Cairo International Airport third passenger terminal for 350 million US dollar, which is covered by a 335 million dollar loan from the World Bank. Nearly 50 per cent of Egypt's passenger traffic is passing through Cairo International Airport which has a maximum capacity of nine million passengers and is not equipped to absorb additional traffic. December 2004 a contract was given to Fraport AG (a German company) to manage the airport for 8 years. A 5-star hotel is planned to be build just in front of terminal 3.

Terminal 2: It's adiacent to terminal 3. When terminal 2 needed expansion they build terminal 3.

Terminal 1: There will be an automated people mover between terminal 1 and terminals 2/3 in 2010. Terminal 1 is still in action in 2010, but terminals 2and 3 combined are larger. They even have connected an air mall to terminal 2. The hotels with pools (Novotel, Ibero) at the airport are within walking distance of that air mall.
