The Israel Airports Authority’s board has approved the building of the fourth concourse of terminal 3 in order to enable the implementation of the Israeli Government’s decision regarding the open skies agreement and due to the increase in traffic of passengers and aircraft at Ben Gurion Airport. These two factors require an impressive input of resources and re-planning for the airport.
The fourth conocurse will not only adapt the current capacity of the airport to the increase in passenger traffic in the past few years, but it will also enable further increases in traffic in the future. According to forecasts, in 2018, 17 million passengers will travel via Ben Gurion Airport and the overall traffic for 2019-2020 is also predicted to exceed 16 million passengers. Trends in international and domestic aviation: Implementation of the government’s decision to close Dov Hoz Airport and transfer commercial activity to Ben Gurion Airport.
