This morning, the Israel Airports Authority called on travelers to arrive early at Ben Gurion Airport because of sanctions being applied by airport workers. At this stage, there is no exceptional disruption to the flight schedule, but the Authority is concerned that long queues will form at Terminal 3.

Because of the sanctions, twelve flights that were due to leave from Terminal 1 were diverted to Terminal 3. The automatic security inspection system, which is in the final stages of implementation at Ben Gurion Airport, has not been working since yesterday evening, and the systems in the Terminal 3 departures hall have been reactivated.

This is liable to cause long queues for security inspection. The Israel Airports Authority advises passengers to come to the airport at least three hours before the departure time of the flight, and to keep up to date with the situation via the airlines and the Authority’s website.
