Does anyone here know the passenger numbers of Tel Aviv Airport during 2002?
Since they are not a part of the Airports Council International (ACI), they are not shown on their website. I am sure they are not in the top 100 airports.
I know that in 2001 they handled around 9 million but then that was followed by a 20% drop due to the ongoing trouble between them and Palestine. According to their website they will only extend their new Terminal 3 'when passenger numbers exceed 7.5 million'. So how low is it?

The peak year was 2000. The Pope visited Israel and many came with him.
There were 9,301,607 passengers in 2000.
On Sep 2000 the Intifada began and the numbers started to drop.
In 2001 there were 7,878,306 passengers and in 2002 (the worse year) there were only 6,853,104 passengers.
2003 suppose to be a better year.
