Israel to build a new International Airport in Timna

The Transport Minister in Israel, Israel Katz today announced that work would soon begin on a new International Airport in Timna about 18 miles north of Eilat, to be managed by the Israeli Airport Authority.  The airport will be called the Ilan Ramon Airport.

There will be three stages of tender for the development of the airport, which will include land planning; infrastructure planning and planning of the 3600 meter runway; and planning of the terminal.

It is expected that the airport will see about 2 million passengers a year.

This will also see the closure of the existing Eilat airport.
