Our brand new airport located 18 km north of Eilat has finally opened.
On February 4th 2019 the first flight, operated by Israir, landed on the new long landing strip. Around dinner time the plane taxied towards the beautifully new designed arrival hall off the Ramon airport Eilat (ETM).

In the next coming months all domestic flights departing from Eilat City airport (ETH) will be moved to the new Ramon airport (ETM). As well as domestic flights from Tel Aviv (SDV) will be moved to Tel Aviv (BGN) airport. When all flights are moved and rescheduled, the internal connection from Eilat to Tel Aviv is going to be between Eilat Ramon (ETM) and Tel Aviv Ben Gurion airport. (BGN)

The international flights are continuing their schedule to OVDA (VDA) airport until March 31st. OVDA airport will close down on April 1st.

I guess that all international flights must be ready to make their first touch down at the new Ramon Eilat airport as off October 2019 🙂
