The pope left Rome shortly after 11 o'clock in the morning. He got out of this car at the base of the plane and embarked on one of the most delicate and significant journeys of his pontificate.

Shortly before two o'clock he arrived at Cairo International Airport. There he was welcomed by the country authorities and also by a representation of both the Catholic and Coptic Churches.
