"Well it's no Four Seasons."
"As far as safe houses go, it's not bad. Phuket didn't even have mattresses."
"Yeah, but Cairo had thousand thread count sheets with that sateen finish."
Antoine Triplett and John Garrett[src]

Cairo is the capital of Egypt and the largest city in the Middle-East and Africa.

History

Aerodynamic Marvel Rescue

After Iron Man rescued the pilot of the Aerodynamic Marvel from members of the Congolese Army in league with the Ten Rings, General Thaddeus Ross, who was in charge of the vehicle field test and infuriated by the outcome of the events, ordered Stark to land at Cairo. Stark cut the communication to show his weariness of being manipulated by the United States Armed Forces.

Stark arrived at the Cairo West Air Base, placing the pilot under medical care and confronting Ross about his knowledge of their intentions of making him kill the soldiers. Stark had conducted a research on Ross while traveling from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, learning about his role in experiments of genetic enhancements for military exploitation. He warned Ross not to put any innocent life in harm's way just to advance a military agenda before leaving Egypt to return to the United States.[1]

S.H.I.E.L.D. Safehouse

S.H.I.E.L.D. agents John Garrett and Antoine Triplett visited one of S.H.I.E.L.D.'s safehouses in Cairo during one of their missions. This particular safehouse impressed the agents, later comparing it to the one in Sydney, as Cairo's safehouse even had luxury thousand-thread-count sheets, with a sateen finish.[2]

Project Insight

"Zola's algorithm is a program... for choosing Insight's targets."
"What targets?"
"You. A TV anchor in Cairo, the Undersecretary of Defense, a high school valedictorian in Iowa City..."
Jasper Sitwell and Captain America[src]

Cairo was one of the intended targets of Project Insight, as some of its citizens were deemed a threat for HYDRA's plans. Jasper Sitwell explicitly referred to a TV anchor living in Cairo as one of the targets for Insight. The city was not shot as Captain America and his allies were able to change the intended targets and stop HYDRA in time.[3]
