Tel Aviv Airport (TLV)
Tel Aviv Airport, also known as Ben Gurion International, is by far the busiest airport in Israel, with more than 10 times as many annual passengers as Eilat Airport in the south of the country. Ben Gurion Airport is 20km from Tel Aviv city centre.
Tel Aviv is a hub for several airlines, including El Al and Israir.
Tel Aviv Airport facilities
Tel Aviv Airport has 2 functional terminals: Terminal 1 and Terminal 3. Until June 2017, Terminal 1 was used merely for check-in and security purposes, with all passengers transported to Terminal 3 to board their planes. However, renovations to the terminal mean that low-cost carriers now actually depart from Terminal 1, while full-service airlines use Terminal 3.
Terminal 3 is the bigger of the terminals, with a wider range of shops and restaurants, however passengers flying from Terminal 1 aren't short of choices either. A free shuttle service connects the 2 terminals.
Security in Tel Aviv Airport is notoriously high for departing passengers. It's advised to give yourself plenty of extra time to make your way though the security checks.
Wireless internet is free to use in all areas of the airport.
