Jerusalem airport is the Ben Gurion International Airport (TLV). The airport is well connected to main destinations in Europe, North America and Asia with over 70 airlines serving it.

Ben Gurion Airport is situated near the town of Lod, 35 minutes from Jerusalem and about a half hour drive from Tel Aviv. Despite its location, the airport is commonly referred to as Tel Aviv Airport by tourists.

Ben Gurion Airport’s security is probably of the highest standard in the world, and you will likely be met with a string of security questions. It is advisable to have a print out of the details of where you will be staying and some form of itinerary.

Upon departure, it is advised to check in your luggage at least three hours before flight departure.

Ben Gurion Airport was completely renovated in 2004 and is ultra-modern, efficient and equipped with duty-shops, restaurants, banks and currency exchange offices. Most airlines fly to and from the renovated Terminal 3 building, apart from European discount airlines such as Easy Jet, which fly to and from Terminal 1, and require that passengers arrive only 1 hour in advance of the flight.
