Out to the east of Cairo, Egypt, is a large two-runway airport that Google Maps calls "Capital Cairo Airport" or "Capital International Airport". Here's a link. However, I can't find any information about this airport or what it's used for. Cairo has a major international airport within the city, here, so I'm confused as to what this large airport only 30-40 minutes away is.
As far as I can tell, it doesn't appear on Wikipedia's List of airports in Egypt, and satellite view shows no planes parked at this airport. Satellite view history in Google Earth shows that two years ago, the airport only had one runway, but since then the second runway was added. So apparently this airport was important enough to merit two runways, both over 10,000 ft. Why? What is it used for? Does anyone know?
