New Tel Aviv Airport Terminal?

Fri Sep 05, 2003 3:00 am

For several years now I have seen/read that Ben-Gurion International Airport was constructing a replacement passenger terminal. In this photo from August 2002

you can see that the building is essentially complete. However, I haven't heard anything about it opening to passenger traffic. It looks to be a very large and modern facility, certainly on a par with some of the other new Middle East terminals (BEY, DXB, RUH, etc.)

Can anyone provide any information?

The new terminal is now scheduled to open in June 2004. The train connection to Tel Aviv will already be operational in the Spring of 2004.
I bitterly miss the livery that should never have been changed (repetition...)
