Can anyone explain to me why are there no flights leaving or landing from tonight until tomorrow midday?
Is it the first time an airport is opening a new terminal?

Any explanations please?

Ly334,
All of the air traffic will be stopped from 12PM GMT till 11AM GMT. The closure is needed since the current international terminal (T1) is being closed completely. The whole operation is similar (although on a much ,much smaller scale) to the Kai Tak closure.

I understand that each concourse (out of 3 existing + 2 more optional) has 8 jetway gates and two more gates for bus transportation (1/1A). Are 24 jetways total sufficient for the current operations? I think that it's more than the total number of bus gates in the old terminal one, but you need jetway for a longer time period than a bus gate. How many boardings, if at all, will be done on remote stands with bus transportation?

Ly334,

Maybe an evening news item , not more than that.

Cospn, Ilyag
As of today there are 24 operational air conditioned jetways, that also provide almost all of the ground handling to the a/c (not sure about the fuel).

It is estimated that during the pick hours (summer weekends, etc.) only 70% of all a/c will be served via the jetways.

I'll be there on Thursday and write a trip report. Follow the trip reports forum.

LY7E7 I note 3 VIP Lounges, one on each concourse - are they for all airlines or do EL AL have a separate one as in the old terminal? Can you do to any of the 3 or just the Lounge on 'your' concourse.

Any one know if any of the 2 MacDonalds are kosher??

Also I heard from a BA Crew Member they are close to deciding on a 3rd Daily LHR-TLV. Anyone know anything?

TLVFred,

Welcome to A.net!

AFAIK the VIP lounge on each concourse is designated for the pax whose flights depart from that concourse. Since LY has its own concourse (still don't know which one) you can say that the lounge there is exclusively for LY.


Donnow about the McDonald's, but I surely do hope that at least one is non-kosher.

The rumor about BA sounds unlikely, but who knows...

Thanks LY7E7 - Read the following info - they tell you at check in which lounge is yours (jpost.com 2/11/04)

There are three concourses, B (farthest to the left), C (center) and D (farthest right). Two more concourses, A and E, will eventually be built, once the current terminal requires expansion. Each concourse has eight gates with airbridges, and two for buses, just in case the terminal is overloaded with flights.

Concourse D serves El Al. Here you will board all flights by the national carrier, and enter its King David Lounge. El Al has 16 departing flights and five arriving flights on Tuesday. Most foreign carriers have scaled back their services to Israel, just for the first day of Terminal 3's operation.

Aside from the King David Lounge, there are two lounges for premium passengers, those flying First or Business Class. One is in B, and the other in C. Ground staff at check-in will advise the passenger which lounge they are entitled to enter.

Regarding gate locations, Continental Airlines, Swiss and British Airways have already advised their passengers of the concourse area, which is C.

I cant wait to get over there to see it..I have arrived at the old terminal, which was so dated and Israel is more deserving of this world class facility!

I am sure it is true-to-form in its use of beautiful natural materials as part of the design phase!

Congratulations!

Something Interesting,
The check-in counters for Star alliance companies, will be done on the G level which is not the regular check-in floor.
