New Ramon airport opened north of Eilat in early 2019 and should replace two existing airports in Eilat. Eilat Airport and Ovda Airport. Ramon is a modern international airport offering new opportunities for tourists from all over the world to visit South Israel and the Red Sea.

Ramon Airport is designed to serve up to 2 million passengers a year. In addition, expansion is envisaged, since there is enough space, allowing up to 4.2 million passengers to be served by 2030.

After opening, all domestic flights to the old airport of Eilat from Tel Aviv and Haifa will be moved to Ramon. At the same time, the airport will also start serving Low Cost and charter flights from Europe that landed at Ovda airport. At the first stage, flights to Ramon will be carried out by international air carriers: Ryanair, WizzAir, easyJet, Transavia, SAS, Finnair, Edelweiss and Ural Airlines.

The terminal building of Ramon Airport was designed by architects Mann Shinar. The terminal has all the basic features of a modern airport terminal, including a duty-free shop, currency exchange, information desk and transportation services.

Basic facts about Ramon Airport.

  • Parking space for 9 large and wide-bodied aircraft, for example, used by European low cost airlines.
  • Space for apron for 4 turboprop aircraft, for example, used on domestic flights from Tel Aviv and Haifa to Eilat.
  • Apron for 16 general aviation aircraft.
  • The runway strip is 3600 m long and 45 m wide.
  • Place for landing helicopters.
  • Ramon will also be able to take and large cargo aircraft.

The new terminal of Eilat Airport was designed using materials that reflect the natural beauty of the Timna Valley, where the airport is located. People call the airport Timna Airport in the light of location, but the official name is Ramon International Airport.

It is expected that those airlines that served Eilat Airport (ETH): Israir and Arkiya will operate at the new airport of Eilat. There are also European airlines serving Ovda Airport, including Ryanair, Wizz and other European charter airlines during the winter season. It is expected that Ryanair will deploy several aircraft at the new airport and turn this center into the center of attention of its European route network.

Ramon Airport is just 18 km north of Eilat and it will eventually be served by rail, but currently buses will deliver the Ramon Airport to Eilat. Trip time 10 minutes to the city.

Ramon will also be the gateway to the southern part of Jordan, including the resort of Aqaba, the areas of Wadi Rum and Petra, as well as the Taba district at Sinai in Egypt. From Ramon Airport, you can book transfers to Jordan and Egypt, since the new airfield is really becoming a regional center.

Reasons of creating.

Construction of the airport Ramon will allow to solve a number of issues and goals:

  4. All this will give an additional impetus to the development of tourism in the Red Sea region.

Taxi.

This service is remarkable in that the price will be fixed, even if the entire way to Eilat will be clogged with traffic jams and the driver will spend twice as much time on this trip as he planned. You pay exactly what was originally indicated.

Rent a car.

Car rental services are available in the arrival hall, vehicles are parked outside the terminal. To get a car for rent, you need to present a passport and driver’s license.

But keep in mind that the airport is not a car rental station. That is, to choose here a car of a certain brand and comfort is unlikely to succeed: you need to take what is in stock.
