Will all of Egyptairs flight depart from here or only the international ones?
Will terminal 1 still remain in large usage?

Must say it looks great, I lived in Egypt when Terminal 2 was opened and it was a massive improvement over termainl 1.

how recent are the construction photos ? I hope they are quite old because to me it looks like there is a lot more than 2 months work to do on the new terminal - but it does look like a nice design and I am sure that it will be another great link in the "under one roof" strategy for Star Alliance
