An artificial sea-level shortcut in Egypt that offers a direct route between the  North Atlantic and northern Indian oceans via the Mediterranean and Red seas, thus avoiding the South Atlantic and southern Indian oceans and reducing the journey distance from the Arabian Sea to Europe by approximately 5,500 miles (8,900 km), or approximately 10 days.
