Air Travel to Israel

 

 Most of the international airlines operate flights to Israel.  El Al, operates many direct flights from the United States, Europe, the Far East, and Africa. 
Other Israeli airlines such as Arkia and Israir operate flights from central locations in Europe.  There are no direct flights to Israel from distant locations such as Australia or South Africa, or from countries that have no diplomatic relations with Israel.  It is therefore a good idea to reserve a connecting flight from these places, or to arrive in Europe and then purchase a ticket to Israel.

 

Flight times to Israel from some cities:

From London - about 4 ½ hours

From Los Angeles - about 17 hours

From New York - about 11 hours

From Singapore - about 11 hours

 

Most international flights land at Ben Gurion Airport, which is located near the town of Lod - approximately a half hour’s drive from Tel Aviv.  Ben Gurion airport has recently opened a new, modern terminal with a large variety of duty-free shops, restaurants, and coffeehouses.  Some flights from Europe also land at Sde Dov in north Tel Aviv or at Ovda Airport near Eilat.
