Travel between Luxor and Aswan

We have a tight schedule to get from Luxor airport to Aswan. EgyptAir schedule will not meet our needs. Need some info on the use of a service taxi between these two points.Does travel on that road still require police escort? Thank you

I know you are not planning to use Egypt Air, but in case you rethink your plans, don't pay any attention to the scheduled flight times. We took at least 6 flights within Egypt and not one was remotely on time. Delays ranged from two hours to more than four hours. Sometimes these delays were announced the day before, sometimes when we were at the airport.

If a definite arrival time is important, take a taxi. However, know that the driving in Egypt is hair-raising. There is passing on single lane roads and on curves, passing of buses that you can't see around, etc. This was true in every city - Cairo, Luxor and Aswan. If you have to pay extra for a bigger car with a driver you can communicate with, do so. You will feel safer - maybe.
