Ben Gurion Airport's Low-Cost Terminal to Resume Operations on June 1

Ben Gurion Airport’s Terminal 1, designated for low-cost and Eilat flights, will re-open on June 1, the Transportation Ministry announced on Tuesday, March 19.

The move is expected to bring back airlines, like Ryanair, that halted flights but promised to return upon Terminal 1’s reopening, drawn by its lower fees of $11 per passenger versus Terminal 3’s $27.

According to Airports Authority data, recent months have seen a steady increase in passengers traveling abroad, as well as a significant return of foreign international airlines to Ben Gurion Airport.

The data indicates that over 60 international airlines operating at Ben Gurion Airport are expected to fly to more than 100 destinations during the summer months. The daily passenger number in the summer is expected to reach about 70,000, compared to the current 35,000 passengers.

Delta Air Lines is one of the airlines that will return to Israel, as it said late on Wednesday that it will resume flights starting June 7, becoming the second major US carrier to do so following the October 7 massacre.

Delta said it will begin daily flights between New York-JFK and Tel Aviv on an Airbus A330-900neo following an extensive security risk assessment by the airline. United Airlines resumed flights to Israel earlier this month from Newark but does not plan to restart flights from other US cities until at least this fall. (YNet / VFI News)
